The CRAIC QDI 2000(c) microspectrophotometer has a 75W Xenon lamp capable of taking UV-visible-near IR measurements from 200-900 nm in transmittance mode as well as UV-visible fluorescence and reflectance. The system also can obtain images using a CRAIC CCD that are viewed using IC Capture (Version 188.8.131.52) software. This instrument is used for research and teaching. Current research projects include fluorescent dyes for fingerprint development, fluorescent nanoparticles for fingerprint development, human hair dyes, automotive paint clear coats, pigmented inks, explosives, drugs and fibers. Many of the spectra collected are interpreted with multivariate statistics.
