FARIS-1

Submillimeter wave exclusive Fourier transform spectrophotometer

A technology gap exists in the region of 100 GHz to 10 THz (the region called the terahertz region, submillimeter wave region or far infrared region), electromagnetic wave technology in this region is attracting attention and development.
FARIS-1 is a hybrid Fourier spectrophotometer of Michelson type with high efficiency on high wavenumber side and high efficiency Martin · puppet type at low wave number side. Wide range measurement from infrared to far infrared and millimeter wave range is possible by simply changing the optical element and changing the detector. Step scan specifications and polarization modulation specifications are also available, so you can build a system customized for research use.

FT-IR Micro-Area Analysis - IQ Mapping

JASCO's new FT-IR microscope systems feature an innovative capability for sample analysis, "IQ Mapping". This function enables automated multi-point mapping, line mapping and IR Imaging analyses of a microscopic area with a manual sample stage and a single element detector. The microscope system automatically scans the specified points or area, rapidly collecting a full spectrum of each point without moving the sample stage. The IQ Mapping function can provide a measurement of a maximum area of 400 µm square using the 16× Cassegrain objective. The combination of IQ Mapping with the automated XYZ stage provides a wide area analysis capability.
