Bruker IFS 66V spectrometer for high pressure studies

The principle of operation, the structure, as well as the spectral range of the instrument are the same as those of the Bruker IFS 125spectrometer. The only differences are in the resolution (0.1 cm-1 instead of 0.0019cm-1) and the range of pressure. We have several cells (including a cooled one) at high pressure (up to 200 bar). In such conditions, collisions effects on the spectral profile effects are magnified and therefore more easily quantified. Spectra being very expanded by the pressure, a maximum nominal resolution of 0.1 cm-1 is sufficient.
