Radboud University developing a fast, compact and transportable Fourier Transform Spectrometer (FTS)
Radboud University is currently developing a compact, fast scanning, transportable Fourier Transform Spectrometer (FTS) which is compatible with high repetition rate mid-infrared supercontinuum sources. This FTS system will be used in combination with the novel mid-infrared supercontinuum source, recently developed in DTU. “The spectrometer covers a broad wavelength range of 2-12 µm and uses the pulsed nature of the mid-infrared supercontinuum light to reduce the measurement noise and provide a high detection sensitivity. In addition, all of the components used in the FTS are off the shelf products, which makes the FTS inexpensive and fast to developed.” – says Amir Khodabakhsh, post-doctoral research fellow from Radboud University.
