Equipment All list
Benchtop Dual-Channel Spectrometer SpinSolv Carbon
An optical device used in spectroscopic studies to accumulate a spectrum, its quantitative processing and subsequent analysis using various analytical methods. The decomposed spectrum is obtained by recording the fluorescence after exposure to the substance under the test with radiation (X-ray or laser radiation, spark action, etc.). Essentially, this device measures the intensity and energy (wavelength, frequency) of radiation and other characteristics can be recorded, for example, the polarization state. The term “spectrometer” is applied to devices operating in a wide range of wavelengths: from gamma to infrared range.
X-ray powder diffraction apparatus DRON-7
The device is designated for X-ray diffraction analysis to specify material compositions.
Application area
  • in analytical chemistry; almost all methods for determination are based on the dependence of the concentrations of substances, which are available for measurement and its composition; therefore, an important area of analytical chemistry and its application is the search and study of such dependencies in order to use them in solving analytical problems; it is almost always necessary to find the equation of relation between property and composition, to develop methods for registering property (analytical signal), to remove difficulties from other components, to exclude the interfering effect of the various factors (temperature fluctuations).
  • in characterization of various single crystals, polyfunctional ligands and their further use in electronics (plasma, LCD screens).
