The VERTEX Series is built on a fully upgradeable optics platform that is designed with the utmost flexibility in mind. VERTEX spectrometers share a wide range of features, including the Bruker Artificial Intelligence Network (BRAIN), Automatic Component Recognition (ACR), the Plug & Play Ethernet connection and Automatic Accessory Recognition (AAR). VERTEX 70 series offer unmatched performance and versatility for demanding analytical and research applications. Its innovative design results in the highest flexibility and highest performance. The data acquisition is based on two channel deltasigma ADCs with 24-bit dynamic range, which are running in parallel and integrated into the detector preamplifier electronics. This advanced DigiTect technology prevents external signal disturbance and guarantees the highest signal-to-noise ratio. The VERTEX 80 and the VERTEX 80v vacuum FT-IR spectrometers are based on the actively aligned UltraScan™ interferometer, which provides PEAK spectral resolution. The precise linear air bearing scanner and PEAK quality optics guarantees the ultimate sensitivity and stability. The VERTEX 80v is an evacuated optics bench that can eliminate atmospheric moisture absorptions for ultimate sensitivity and stability; enabling demanding experiments such as high resolution, ultra fast rapidscan, step-scan, or UV spectral range measurements.
[u]VERTEX 70[/u] Wide Spectral Range The and the 70v can optionally be equipped with optical components to cover the spectral range from 15cm-1 (10cm-1 for VERTEX 70v) in the far IR/THz, through the mid and near IR up to the visible/UV spectral range at 28,000cm-1. With its pre-aligned optical components and permanently aligned RockSolid interferometer, range change is easy and maintenance free. Vacuum Optics With the evacuable optics bench of the VERTEX 70v vacuum FT-IR spectrometer, PEAK sensitivity in the mid-, near and far IR/THz regions are obtained without the fear of masking very weak spectral features caused by water vapor or CO2 absorptions. Outstanding results, e.g. in the area of nano-science research down to sub-monolayers, can be obtained. BRAIN: Bruker Artificial Intelligence Network A network of intelligent functions such as recognition of sampling accessories and optical components, automatic set up and check of measurement parameters makes FT-IR spectroscopy easy, fast and reliable. In addition, the permanent online check of spectrometer components keeps fault diagnostics and maintenance simple. A full suite of software tools ensures this functionality. Plug & Play: Easy Set Up All over the world, no matter where you are, plug in the power cord and the Ethernet connection, and the VERTEX 70 is ready for operation. The Ethernet connection to the VERTEX 70 also offers the possibility to control the spectrometer via your network or the World Wide Web. [u]VERTEX 80/80v[/u] PEAK spectral range extension The can optionally be equipped with optical components to cover the spectral range from the far IR, or terahertz, through the mid and near IR and visible and up to the ultraviolet spectral range. With its pre-aligned optical components and the actively aligned UltraScan™ interferometer, range change and maintenance are easy. Optical PEAK resolution The VERTEX 80 and the VERTEX 80v standard configuration provides apodized spectral resolution of better than 0.2 cm-1, which is sufficient for most ambient pressure gas phase studies and room temperature sample measurements. For advanced low temperature work, e. g. on crystalline semiconductor materials or gas phase measurements at lower pressure, a PEAK resolution of better than 0.07 cm-1 is available. This is the highest spectral resolution achieved using a commercial bench top FT-IR spectrometer. High resolution spectra in the visible spectral range demonstrate a resolving power (wavenumber Ν divided by spectral resolution ?Ν) of better 300,000:1. PEAK versatility The innovative optics design results in the most flexible and expandable R&D vacuum FT-IR spectrometer available. With the evacuated optics bench, PEAK sensitivity in the mid-, near- and far IR regions is obtained without the fear of masking very weak spectral features by air water vapor absorptions. Outstanding results, e.g. in the area of nanoscience research down to less than 10-3 monolayers, can be obtained with the VERTEX 80v vacuum FT-IR spectrometer. There are virtually no limitations with respect to flexibility. Five beam exit ports on the right, front and left side and two beam input ports on the right and rear side of the optics bench are available. This allows simultaneous connection of, for example, a synchrotron light source using the rear side input port, the PMA 50 polarization modulation accessory at the right side exit beam, a fiber optics coupling at the right front side port, a bolometer detector at the left front and the HYPERION™ series FT-IR microscope at the left side exit beam. BRAIN: Bruker Artificial Intelligence Network A network of intelligent functions such as recognition of sampling accessories (AAR) and optical components (ACR), automatic set-up and check of measurement parameters and the permanent online checking (PerformanceGuard) of the spectrometer functionality makes FT-IR spectroscopy easy, fast and reliable even for advanced R&D experiments.
