MIRa-Guide – Advanced mid-infrared waveguide technology for analyzing solids and liquids

MIRa_Guide Logo

  • Miniaturized thin film ATR set-up
  • Frequency-matched to MIR-Lasers
  • MIRa-lab-on-a-chip possible
  • ACTUAL available for two transmission ranges:
    approx. 1700 to 1250 cm-1 (6-8 μm)                          and 1250 to 900 cm-1 (8-11 μm)

Mid-Infrared single-mode waveguide for spectroscopy of solids and liquids.

MIRa-Guide® is a single-mode waveguide especially designed for the mid-infrared absorption spectroscopy based on tunable IR light sources offering a by an order of magnitude reduced footprint compared to conventional technologies such as Attenuated-Total-Reflection-Cells (ATR-Cell).
