Diamonds are often touted as some of the most beautiful, elegant and sought-after gemstones on Earth, with many consumers paying top-dollar for the most brilliant stones. But have you ever wondered what actually makes a diamond a diamond? Or how gemologists are able to identify the real deals? Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) analysis is […]
Introduction to FTIR FTIR Analysis measures the infrared region of the electromagnetic radiation spectrum, which has a longer wavelength and a lower frequency than visible light, and is measurable in a sample when submitted to infrared radiation (IR). The basic theory at work is that the bonds between different elements absorb light at different frequencies. […]
