Fourier transform spectroscopy

[¦fu̇r·ē¦ā ′tranz‚fȯrm spek′träs·kə·pē]
(spectroscopy)
A spectroscopic technique in which all pertinent wavelengths simultaneously irradiate the sample for a short period of time, and the absorption spectrum is found by mathematical manipulation of the Fourier transform so obtained.

In addition to regular IR sampling in the form of KBr discs, Nujol/fluorolube split mulls, and solution cells, we are able to perform diffuse reflectance infrared fourier transform spectroscopy (DRIFTS) on substances whose nature would be altered by the compression required to form KBr discs (e.
