Centralised Instrumentation Facility

NIT, Rourkela (NITR) – is a premiere institute of higher learning under the Ministry of Human Resource and Development (MHRD), GOI and is recognized as Institute of National Importance. Government of India has elevated the Regional Engineering College, Rourkela to a deemed university under the name of National Institute of Technology, Rourkela. NITR strives for creating an environment where hundreds of faculties and their thousands of students are in a teaching learning process and carry out research on subjects for wealth and well being of society.


NITR has created a massive infrastructure for R & D in most branches of engineering and science utilizing various funding sources. At NITR, no matter which agency has provided the funds, the equipment and software are available for use by the entire research community. In order to maximize the utilization of all the high end equipments and their better management, these equipments are brought under one umbrella “Centralized Equipment Facility” vide resolution of 54th Board of Governors meeting in May 2017.

Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy-Attenuated Total Reflection Microscope

Make & Model: Shimadzu IR Prestige-21
Location: FRP Composite V, MM Dept.
Instrument Incharge: Prof. Rajesh Kumar Prusty
In-charge Email Id: prustyr@nitrkl.ac.in
Instrument Status: Functional

Specification: FTIR equipped with microscope, wavelength range: 350 to 7800 cm-1, high sensitivity, measures sample with low transmittance, small sample size, high speed measurement, high wave no accuracy.

Principle: Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) is a technique which is used to obtain an infrared spectrum of absorption, emission, photo conductivity or Raman scattering of a solid, liquid or gas. An FTIR spectrometer simultaneously collects spectral data in a wide spectral range.While that a dispersive spectrometer measures intensity over a narrow range of wavelengths at a time. FTIR has made dispersive infrared spectrometers all but obsolete (except sometimes in the near infrared), opening up new applications of infrared spectroscopy.

Application: • To obtain the FTIR spectra of powder and film materials • Microscope to identify a particular location for FTIR analysis • Attenuated Total Reflection
