Thermo Scientific ConservatIR FTIR external reflection accessory

Thursday, 24 May, 2018 | Supplied by: Thermo Fisher Scientific


An accessory compatible with Thermo Scientific FTIR spectrometers is designed to enable art conservationists to easily perform spectral analysis to verify the authenticity of paintings, sculptures, textiles and other large artwork.

The Thermo Scientific ConservatIR FTIR external reflection accessory lets users analyse objects that do not fit inside the sample compartment of Thermo Scientific benchtop Nicolet FTIR spectrometers. The external accessory directs an infrared beam to an optomechanical arm that articulates in a range of motion from -5 to 95 degrees, enabling art authenticators to measure samples in multiple orientations. As an additional benefit, users can measure samples in two modes: specular/diffuse reflection, for non-contact analysis, or attenuated total reflection (ATR), using an optional diamond ATR sampling interface.

An integrated video camera on the accessory enables users to magnify the sample image to facilitate high confidence in the measurement location. Once data is generated using the ConservatIR accessory, users can analyse it with Thermo Scientific OMNIC software, designed to provide ease of data collection and analysis in one platform. The accessory is also designed to enable spectral analysis of other large objects, including automotive parts, toys, fixtures and castings.
