REFLEX Analytical introduces and complements their manual infrared polarizers with an automated infrared polarizer series. The automated polarizers are mounted in a standard 2" x 3" slide mount and are compatible with all FTIR spectrometers and breadboard benches. The automated polarizers specifications are identical to the manual series with the exception of computer control utilizing software and motion control; permitting programmable and sequential selection of polarization angles along with the automatic collection of spectra. An additional benefit of
the automated polarizer is the reproducibility and setting of polarization angles; increasing manual accuracy from +/- 2 degrees to +/- 0.10 degrees in the automated format. The speed of auto-rotation is equally impressive; rotating from 0 to 90 degrees in approximately 2 seconds.

Operating across a broad spectral range (1 - 1000 microns) materials include BaF2 Barium Fluoride, CaF2 Calcium Fluoride, Ge Germanium, KRS-5 Thallium Bromide Iodide, ZnSe Zinc Selenide, Polyethylene and Polyester. Free-standing wire grids are fabricated using tungsten or beryllium-copper wire. Mounted auto polarizer substrates
offer a 20 mm clear aperture.
