verTera THz extension

One spectrometer for Infrared, THz and more:

Including verTera extension the VERTEX 80v can in its broadest configuration cover an impressive spectral range from 3 cm-1 to 50,000 cm-1 from THz to UV. verTera is appli- cable with several THz compatible FTIR sample compartment accessories such as transmittance, gas cells, reflectance and THz compatible ATR units, allowing for a unified workflow in the extremely broad spectral range covered by FTIR and cw THz technology.

Convenient FTIR and cw THz measurements in the same vacuum sample compartment under identical conditions.

The increased spectral range and improved THz resolution provided by verTera add valuable information for many applications, e.g.: polymorphism, polymer research, high resolution gas spectroscopy, crystal structure (solid state & semiconductor physics) and pharma or drug related research.
