Specac DC-3 Diamond Compression Cell

Specac DC-3 Diamond Compression Cell

Product Advantages

  • Type lIIA diamond windows

  • Multifunctional for FTIR spectrometers and IR microscopes

  • High working pressure



Product Details

Specac’s DC-3 Diamond Compression Cell is suitable for analysis of hard samples, e.g. minerals, rubbers, and rigid polymers, through Beam Condenser or FTIR microscope.
Samples are compressed and flattened to a uniform thickness which is thin enough for the FTIR instrument or microscope beam to penetrate. Minimal sample preparation is required, which means that samples are ready for direct FTIR spectroscopic analysis.
The DC-3 cell consists of two Hastelloy plates into which a pair of diamond windows is fixed using a high-strength and durable diamond-to-metal bond technology. The strength of this diamond mount facilitates a reduced thickness of diamond window (0.5 mm) to achieve the highest infrared optical throughput for this type of micro transmission cell.
