Spectra in < 1 second!
Publication-quality spectra in minutes.
With rapid-scan pulse shaping, the 2DQuick can scan time delays on a shot-by-shot basis. This means that a full 2D IR spectrum can be measured in less than a second. Multiple spectra can then be averaged as needed for the desired signal-to-noise.
  • Improves signal-to-noise
  • Observe real-time changes in proteins or other samples
  • Average only as long as you need to

The 2DQuick has many powerful features. Phase cycling, rotating frame and the ability to chose between time- and frequency-domain collection can all improve signal-to-noise over conventional spectrometers.
Our state-of-the-art design is based on the 2D IR spectrometers responsible for over 30 recent publications from the Zanni research group.
Our powerful, yet user-friendly QuickControl software allows you to change experiments with the click of a button.
Advanced 3D modeling means that the 2DQuick is compact and easy-to-align.

REFERENCING IMPROVES SIGNAL-TO-NOISE The 2DQuick is designed to allow referencing with dual-array detectors.

Referencing reduces laser noise and improves signal-to-noise by a factor of 3 or more.
The 2DQuick is based on technology from the following publications and others
