The Centre for Reactive Trace Gases Remote Sensing (CREGARS)

The Centre for Reactive Trace Gases Remote Sensing (CREGARS) has a long-standing collaboration with the German company Bruker, for long-term development of Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectrometers.  

The FTIR spectrometer model from Bruker is used for dedicated spectroscopy measurements, delivering spectroscopic reference data of the type that are needed for atmospheric research.

Recently, the Bruker instruments became the standard in the Network for the Detection of Atmospheric Composition Change (NDACC) and in ACTRIS.

The long-standing cooperation brought continuous development and modifications to match the standards and needs of these communities. Bruker also produced a compact mobile FTIR instrument built and developed based on long-lasting discussions within the different user communities, particularly with KIT research groups. The company continues to be a regular user of ACTRIS facilities to test new developments.
