High-speed IR laser imaging and the identification power of FT-IR finally join forces. With the launch of HYPERION II, Bruker combines QCL and FT-IR technology into a single instrument. Powered by our patented spatial coherence reduction hardware you create stunning IR laser images without cumbersome post-processing.


We invite you to join our development team as they summarize their exciting journey.

What is the difference between QCL and FT-IR?

What is the difference
between QCL and FT-IR?

In a series of educational videos, we discover the value of IR laser imaging and the importance of FT-IR as a complementary technique. We explore what QCL microscopy is, where the difference between FT-IR and QCL lies, and which applications might benefit the most from this exciting new technology. This is accompanied by our new website, that delves further into the technicalities of IR laser imaging.rtant aspects to support beginners.

Identification and visualization of natural gas emissions by SIGIS 2 and HI 90

Identification and visualization
of natural gas emissions
by SIGIS 2 and HI 90

Global warming due to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is one of the most critical and pressing global issues. One essential step in monitoring and controlling human GHG emissions is to first identify the source of these gases. Bruker remote sensing systems such as SIGIS 2 and HI 90 are very efficient and powerful instruments to locate these emissions, since they can identify and especially visualize gas clouds (e.g. methane) even from far distances in real-time. Thanks to HI 90’s high spatial resolution and high frame-rate chemical imaging, it can even seamlessly follow the detailed evolution of the shape of natural gas clouds emitted from small sources such as a smokestack of ca. 40 cm in diameter.

Dairy Analysis Workshop: How NIR spectroscopy can help to streamline your (non-) dairy production

Analysis of dairy products
and plant-based alternatives

Are you involved in quality control of milk and dairy products in the laboratory or in production? Or do you produce vegan alternatives such as plant-based milk, yogurt or vegan cheese? FT-NIR spectroscopy can help you optimize the production of dairy products and plant-based alternatives. Visit our virtual workshop with tips from experts and demonstration in practice.


Why FT-NIR spectroscopy is a powerful alternative to conventional technologies.


Introduction to the new MPA II Dairy Analyzer with virtual demo.


Experiences and results with Industry 4.0 and Bruker FT-NIR spectrometers for dairy monitoring and process control.

Coming soon: OPUS-TOUCH 5.0 with extended R&D functionality

OPUS Spectroscopy Software

Coming soon: OPUS-TOUCH 5.0
with extended R&D functionality 

With version 5 of OPUS-TOUCH, the first true touch-operated software for infrared spectroscopy, the latest release is just around the corner. Besides many further improvements, important new features for research & development with VERTEX and INVENIO spectrometers are included.


For time-resolved measurements such as Rapid & Step Scan, user friendliness was significantly enhanced. Creating and editing Rapid Scan methods via drag & drop have never been so intuitive and simple, while all functions of the OPUS workstation version are available (trigger, loop, buffer etc.).  Time-resolved 3D data can interactively be visualized on the touch display, including 3D rotation and zoom.


The vacuum control of VERTEX spectrometers has been upgraded with a live pressure view, monitoring the evacuation and venting process. Furthermore, a new and highly intuitive workflow guides the user through automated, angular dependent reflection measurements with the accessory A513/QA. Incident, emergent and polarization angle can be adjusted interactively and angle lists for automated measurement series can be edited.


OPUS-TOUCH therefore marks a state-of-the-art and highly comfortable alternative to classical desktop PC operation, not only for routine applications, but also in research laboratories.
