FT-IMAGER is a wide-range multi-purpose Fourier-Transform Infrared facility for Materials, Archaeological and GEological Research at Ghent University.

The setup is a combination of a vacuum near to far infrared spectrometer (Bruker Vertex 80v) and an FTIR microscope (Bruker Hyperion 2000).

It features a very large spectral range (10-15000 cm-1) and high spectral resolution (0.08 cm-1).


The consortium behind FT-IMAGER consists of research groups in solid state and semiconductor physics, inorganic and metal-organic chemistry, photonics, palaeontology and archaeometry.

This facility is sponsored by the Hercules Foundation - FWO.
