Sodium Chloride (NaCl) Windows


Sodium Chloride (NaCl) Windows are ideal for FTIR spectroscopy. Sodium Chloride (NaCl) is a material commonly used in FTIR spectroscopy. NaCl is a relatively low-cost cubic crystalline material that has excellent transmission from 250nm – 16μm. Sodium Chloride (NaCl) Windows, over this large spectral range, have an index of refraction that ranges between 1.4 - 1.6. It is hygroscopic by nature and thus samples should not contain water. The windows are sensitive to thermal shock but can be used in temperatures up to 400°C. NaCl has a density of 2.17 g/cm3 and a Knoop Hardness of 18.2.
