The VERTEX 80 and the VERTEX 80v vacuum FT-IR spectrometers are based on the actively aligned UltraScanª interferometer, which provides PEAK spectral resolution. The precise linear air bearing scanner and PEAK quality optics guarantees the ultimate sensitivity and stability. The VERTEX 80v is an evacuated optics bench that can eliminate atmospheric moisture absorptions for ultimate sensitivity and stability; enabling demanding experiments such as high resolution, ultra-fast rapid scan, step-scan, or UV spectral range measurements.
The VERTEX 80/80v optics design allows PEAK flexibility and at the same time PEAK instrument performance. The unique Bruker Optics DigiTectª technology prevents external signal disturbance, guarantees PEAK signal-to-noise ratio and allows easy and reproducible detector exchange by the instrument user. The two optional external detector ports accommodate the liquid He dewars of bolometer and/or hot electron detectors. In combination with the external water cooled high power Hg-arc source, the recently rediscovered terahertz spectral range is accessible even with a room temperature operated DTGS-detector.
The VERTEX 80/80v can optionally be equipped with optical components to cover the spectral range from the far IR, or terahertz, through the mid and near IR and visible and up to the ultraviolet spectral range. With its pre-aligned optical components and the actively aligned UltraScanª interferometer, range change and maintenance are easy.
