Improved time resolved and modulation options
The actively aligned UltraScanTM interferometer provides PEAK spectral resolution. The infinite life linear air bearing, TrueAlignment of the scanning interferometer arm and PEAK quality optics guarantee the ultimate sensitivity and stability. The innovative TrueAlignment technology does not produce the artifacts, such as ghost peaks and additional noise, that can occur with the dynamic alignment systems used in other spectrometers.
Bruker´s DigiTectTM detector technology ensures lowest electronic noise. It is based on modern dual-channel delta-sigma ADC’s with true 24-bit dynamic range integrated into the detector preamplifier electronics.
The step-scan technique allows the monitoring of the temporal progress of very fast reproducible events (transients) down to the very low ns-range. The interferometer mirror consecutively steps to the separate interferogram points one by one where the experiment is restarted again. Temporal resolution up to 2,5 nsec is possible.
For time-resolved spectroscopy of non-reproducible experiments, data can be obtained using the so-called Rapid-Scan technique. In this case the interferometer mirror moves very fast and up to 4 spectra can be extracted from each full forward-backward interferometer scan. Up to 110 spectra acquisition per second possible.
