FT-IR is a technique which is used to obtain an infrared spectrum of absorption, emission, photoconductivity or Raman scattering of a solid, liquid or gas.
An FT-IR spectrometer simultaneously collects spectral data in a wide spectral range. It is using a method that has wide application and distinct advantages for mobile or stand-off detection. Bruker has developed several instruments that utilise FT-IR:
RAPIDplus is a highly reliable and robust second generation stand-off detectors that can automatically detect, identify and monitor all known Chemical Warfare Agents (CWA) and important Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs) at long distances.
