UV-VIS-NIR Spectrometer (CRF Shared Facility IIT Dehli)

Perkin Elmer’s Lambda 1050 is an ultra-high double beam and double monochromators UV-Vis-NIR Spectrophotometer that has an operating range of 175 – 2500 nm. By measuring the deviance in light at specific wavelengths, the device can be used to conduct a spectroscopic analysis of sample materials. This spectrophotometer is primarily used for measuring the intensity of light absorbed or reflected off of a sample within the Ultraviolet to Near-Infrared range.  All types (non-hazardous) samples such as liquids, solutions, transparent solids, powders and thin films can be characterized using this facility. 

In UV-VIS-NIR Spectroscopy, there are two types of measurements depending on the sample types: UV-VIS Absorption spectroscopy and UV-VIS Diffuse Reflectance Spectroscopy (DRS). Generally in UV-Vis Absorption spectroscopy, we record absorption or transmission spectrum in the VU-Vis range for normal (or close to normal) incidence. As this technique is used to characterize samples in thin film form or in liquid or solution form. In the case of granular/powder or opaque samples or thin films of high surface roughness, we use DRS.
