Textile fibres


ATR-FT-IR spectra of textile fibres

In this page a selection of ATR-FT-IR spectra of textile fibres are presented. All measurements were carried out using a Thermo Scientific Nicolet 6700 FT-IR spectrometer with a  “Smart Orbit” micro-ATR accessory.

Possibilities of classification and semi-quantitative analysis of single- and two-component textile fibres using some of these ATR-FT-IR spectra, PCA and discriminant analysis are discussed in the following paper:  Spectrochimica Acta Part A. 2017, 173, 175−181.
