Agilent Cary 5000 UV-Vis-NIR spectrometer
Agilent Cary 5000 UV-Vis-NIR spectrometer

The research-grade UV-Vis-NIR spectrometer can be used for routine analysis of optical properties of various liquid and solid samples. Calibration and quantitative analysis is also possible. Accessories are available for diffuse and specular reflection measurements. In situ studies of reaction are also possible at a wide range of temperatures with a reaction chamber.

Capabilities/Accessories

  • Available spectral range: 175-3300 nm.
  • The sample compartment can be expanded to accommodate large accessories.

Accessories

  • Standard sample holders for liquids and solids.
  • Diffuse reflection accessory to measure solid samples. Diffuse or specular reflectance modes are available.
  • Praying ManthisTM accessory to study powders in diffuse reflectance mode. Regular and micro-sampling cups are available. A reaction chamber is available for in situ reaction studies at high and low temperatures.
