Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy is a powerful
analytical tool based on interferometery that compares
the returned or transmitted light energy of the IR spectrum
to the emitted source spectrum. The result is a spectrum
of the infrared energy absorbed by the sample. Covalent
bonding vibrational frequencies, such as asymeteric
stretching and deformation stretching is determined
by correlation to the wavelengths in the IR Spectrum.
of the spectral information provides identification
of functional groups or covalent bonding information.
Determination of particulate or stained regions of printed
circuit boards for failure analysis is possible. Identification
of organic coatings on metals, paper and other materials
for construction analysis purposes is also a common
application. Additionally, a comparison of variations
in materials for process control can be provided.
