Bruker Hyperion FT-IR Spectrometer & Microscope

Bard Hall B56

The Hyperion is a high performance infrared microscope with transmission and reflection capabilities.  The microscope has a transparent knife-edge aperture and is equipped with a nose piece with 15x Cassegrain, 4x visible, ATR and GAO objectives; as well as binocular and video viewing. It has a fully automated motorized stage. The Tensor 27 is an FTIR spectrometer that can rapidly identify, quantify and verify routine samples. Specifications:

  • Spectral range is ≈600 – 10,000 cm-¹;
  • Resolution, Better than 0.9 cm-¹;
  • Wave number accuracy, better than 0.019 cm-¹ at 2,000 cm-¹;
  • Measured area, Optimized for diameter of 250 µm, minimum diameter of 20 µm with standard objective;
  • Diameter of ATR Crystal tip 100 µm;
  • Refractive index of ATR Crystal = 4, sample must have a refractive index that is < ATR crystal;
  • Measurements in transmittance mode are suitable for very thin specimens (<50 µm);
  • Detector Sensitivity, DTGS d*>4×10^8cm hz^½ W-¹, MCT 2×10^10cm hz^½ W-¹

Low temperature operation
With the use of a cryostat, FTIR spectra can be acquired, in the tensor sample compartment, in transmission, across a wide range of temperatures from 4.2 K to 500 K. Cryostat operation is possible with Liquid Helium but also with Liquid Nitrogen for more convenient and economical testing above 77 K. The cryostat also features an electrical feedthrough with 10 solder studs for electrical connections to a sample or chip. Please contact the facility manager for more information regarding this capability.
