If you are looking for a high performance, compact and affordable NIR spectrometer, the ARCoptix FT-NIR Rocket is the instrument that you need. Thanks to its permanently aligned interferometer and solid-state reference laser, the FT-NIR Rocket offers excellent stability in both intensity and wavelength scales. The FT-NIR Rocket is compatible with light sources and sampling accessories (like fibers, cuvette folder, ...) typically used with array-detector based NIR spectrometers.
The FT-NIR Rocket is a high-performance system combining high resolution, broad wavelength range and excellent sensitivity. The FT-NIR functioning principle permits to measure over a much broader range than grating spectrometers that are limited to 2100nm. Its outstanding stability in both wavelength and intensity scales makes it an ideal tool for highly reproducible chemometric analysis.In comparison to array-photodiode NIR spectrometers, the single photodiode operation of the FT-NIR ensures no defect pixels, no gain variation among pixels and no dark-current drifts. Also, the device does not suffer from stray-light as grating spectrometers.
