TranSpec is breaking new ground in spectroscopic analysis by
maximising the knowledge extracted from easy to measure spectral data. Using
cutting edge portable spectrometers and optical probes for general and in-situ
analysis, high quality data is gathered and the software performs multivariate
statistical analysis to relate all available spectral information to the
chemistry, properties and metrics of interest. Unique correlations are used for
rapid identification, concentration and property measurements and a variety of
performance metrics. The TranSpec software is easy to use and makes the
building, testing and automation of measurements simple; once calibration is
complete the application can be used by anyone.
Spectroscopy – This technique covers a broad wavelength range of the
electromagnetic spectrum, from ultraviolet (UV) through visible to the near
infrared (NIR) from 350 nm to 2500 nm. Absorption across this spectral range
gives complementary information on electronic vibrations (UV-visible) and
overtones of molecular vibrations (NIR). The correlation between these two interaction
mechanisms can be useful in spectroscopic analysis. NIR can be particularly
sensitive to material properties and condition.
Raman Spectroscopy –
Raman spectroscopy can provide complementary information to FTIR, as it covers
the same vibrational frequency range but is sensitive to different types of
vibrations within the range. Advantages compared with FTIR are little or no
sample preparation and the ability to measure materials through a transparent
medium, eg glass.
