Cricket™ Reflection Accessories

Harrick's Cricket™ is excellent for routine diffuse reflectance (DRIFTS) measurements of powders and other solid samples in quality control environments and research laboratories. Its design follows the Harrick tradition of true diffuse reflectance accessories for FT-IR and UV-Vis spectroscopy. Like its more versatile Praying Mantis cousin, the Cricket™ optimizes the collection of the diffusely reflected light while eliminating the specular component. With a flip of a switch, the Cricket™ converts from its true diffuse reflectance mode to a fixed-angle specular reflectance device, collecting 60° specular or in-line 'diffuse' reflectance. The Cricket™ is available in a downward sampling configuration for powder analysis and an upward model for cohesive solids. Both models are designed for rapid sample and crystal exchange without interrupting the purge of the spectrometer.

Features & Includes
