Infrared Spectroscopy (IRS) – A Molecular Overview

What is infrared spectroscopy? infrared spectroscopy (also known as IR spectroscopy, vibrational spectroscopy, or [henceforth] – IRS) is the measurement of infrared radiation as it interacts with matter by absorption, emission, or reflection. Uses of IRS The most common uses of IRS are the studying and identifying of chemical substances or functional groups in solid, liquid,…

Aluminum coating – uses and advantages

As opposite to light absorbing coatings in many parts there are areas with highly reflective surface, like mirrors or semi mirrors. One of the popular reflective coatings is aluminum.   Outside surface: aluminum coating, internal surface: Acktar Fractal BlackTM coating Aluminized coating is a surface treatment that can be applied to different base metals but is…

What Is Optical Coating?

A proper definition of an optical coating is one or more thin layers of material creates an effect and interaction between light and a certain optical component- such as a lens or mirror. To understand optical coatings, you have to know how light interacts with transparent media. The layers’ effect alters how the optic reflects and…

LWIR Sensors

Long-Wave Infra-Red (LWIR) refers to multi and hyperspectral data collected in the 8-15 µm wavelength range. LWIR surveys are sometimes referred to as "thermal imaging" and can be used to identify relatively warm features such as hot springs, fumaroles and snow melt. LWIR sensors can also be used to map the distribution of certain minerals related…
