An Introduction to the QATRTM-S Single-Reflection ATR Accessory with a Diamond Crystal

Shimadzu's newly introduced IRSpiritTM is a highly compact FTIR featuring the highest signal to noise ratio and maximum resolution in its class (Fig. 1). The instrument has a footprint smaller than an A3 sheet of paper with dimensions being a mere 390 (W) × 250 (D) × 210 (H) mm. In addition, the sample compartment of the IRSpirit is easily accessible whether installed in "landscape" or "portrait" orientation, so that even a narrow opening on a lab bench can accommodate it. IRSpirit is also designed to accommodate transmission accessories such as a KBr pellet holder and demountable cells as well as existing Shimadzu and third party accessories such as single reflection integration-type ATR attachments and diffuse reflection attachments. The IRSpirit also features the dedicated QATR-S single reflection ATR accessory with a diamond crystal which perfectly fits in the sample compartment of the IRSpirit. This article introduces the advantages of the QATR-S together with actual measurement results.
