Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) is a powerful analytical technique used to identify and characterize chemical compounds based on their absorption of infrared light. FTIR works by measuring the intensity of infrared radiation absorbed by a sample across a range of frequencies, providing information about the molecular structure and functional groups present.
ATR-FTIR, or Attenuated Total Reflectance Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy, is a variation of FTIR spectroscopy that uses a crystal with a high refractive index to enhance the interaction between the infrared radiation and the sample. This technique allows for the analysis of samples in their native state without the need for sample preparation, making it ideal for studying surface and thin film materials.
ATR-FTIR spectroscopy offers several benefits for analytical applications, including rapid analysis, minimal sample preparation requirements, and the ability to analyze samples in situ. This technique is particularly useful for identifying and characterizing surface coatings, polymers, biomolecules, and other materials with high sensitivity and specificity.
