Measure directly using Raman or single-bounce Diamond ATR in Far-IR range

Data Analysis Plan: How do you identify the problem?

  • 1. Search libraries using spectral region search to identify components
  • 2. Optimize formulation or manufacturing process

Recommended Configuration: What to use?

Nicolet iS10 FT-IR spectrometer
