JASCO J-1000 series CD spectrophotometers

01 December, 2018

While synchrotron radiation is an effective method to measure the CD spectra of protein film samples in the vacuum-UV region, it requires access to a limited number of facilities. As an alternative to synchrotron radiation, the J-1500 CD spectrometer allows measurements with high signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio in the vacuum-UV region down to 163 nm.
