Circular Dichroism

The Aviv Circular Dichroism Spectrometer, model 215, records CD as a function of wavelength, time, temperature, pH and concentration using a double monochromator containing two UV grade prisms as dispersing elements. Right and left circularly polarized light is produced by a 50 KHz photoelastic modulator.

The instrument includes software by AVIV for instrument control, data acquisition, and processing in a Windows environment.
