Optical characterisation

Optical characterisation methods use radiation of different wavelengths to infer the chemical structure (FT-IR spectroscopy) or the transparency to UV and visible light (UV-VIS spectroscopy) or its absorption behaviour via the transmission and absorption behaviour of materials. Optical characterisation can also be used to quantify the colour coding of samples and their turbidity (haze).

The following methods are available at TITK:

  • UV-VIS spectroscopy
  • FT-IR microspectroscopy
  • Gloss, colour and haze measurement
  • IR thermography
