MIRacle ATR – Fast and Easy IR Sampling
The PIKE MIRacle™ is a universal ATR sampling accessory for analysis of solids, liquids, pastes, gels, and intractable materials. In its most popular configuration, it is a single reflection ATR accessory with high IR throughput which makes it ideal for sample identification and QA/QC applications. Easily changeable crystal plate design enables analysis of a broad spectrum of sample types while ensuring constant sampling pathlength. ATR crystals available are diamond/ZnSe, diamond/KRS-5, ZnSe, Ge, and Si. Advanced options include three reflection ATR crystal plates to optimize for lower concentration components and heating.
- Highest IR throughput
- Fully configurable – ZnSe, Diamond, Ge and Si crystal plates
- Temperature control options
- Optional sealed sample chamber for toxic or chemically aggressive samples
MIRacle Crystal Options
The MIRacle ATR accessory may be configured with five different crystal types: diamond/ZnSe, diamond/KRS-5, ZnSe, Ge and Si. 1-, 3- and 9-reflection styles are available. Trough and flat plate
configurations are options for the multiple reflection plates.
Crystal plates are pinned in place and easily changeable within seconds with no alignment required. With this flexibility, you can change the crystal type to exactly match your sampling requirements. For example, diamond is ideal for brittle samples because it will not scratch, whereas Ge is ideal for carbon-filled samples because of its high refractive index and lower depth of penetration. Two single reflection diamond crystal plates are available, diamond/ZnSe and diamond/KRS-5. The latter offers a full spectral range to 250 cm-1. 3- and 9-reflection crystal plates provide increased sensitivity for minor components in liquid samples. 3-reflection diamond/ZnSe crystal plates are available in flat and trough style, and 9 reflection diamond/ZnSe is offered in trough style only.
