New Internal Users

It is not possible to use or book the spectrometers until you have completed a short training course and are added to our register users list. Training covers the basic safe operation of the spectrometer and covers the collection and analysis of basic data sets, To request training use the Trainign request form.

Tell us about your work

Your published work is a great way for us to track the research impact of the facility so please let us know when you publish using the tell us about your work form. We are also keen to here about conference talks and posters or any other way you have used your data.

Christmas Closure

Please be aware that all the spectroscopy labs will be shut down and unavailable for experiments from the 18th of December until the 5th of January. There will no access to the equipment for users during his period.

New Spectrometer

The spectroscopy RTP was pleased to take delivery of a new FT-IR microscope, a Nicolet iN10. The new system offers MIR mapping in the spectral range 400 - 4000 cm-1, and is capable of both transmission and reflection modes. In addition to this we have the option of a The germanium Micro-Tip ATR accessory for increased spatial resolution.  The Microscope is equipped three detectors, including a cooled MCT-A and an cooled array detector for fast mapping. We will also have improved data processing facilities using Omnic software that includes reference libraries in the lab and all users will have access to ThermoFishers Omnic-Anywhere processing software.

We will be accepting training requests on the new spectrometer once we are able to. If you have any questions or wish to discuss and future experiment, please contact
