ISP NIR Spectra (6049 spectra)



The near infrared spectral library „ISP NIR Spectra“ is a unique collection of 6049 NIR (near infrared) digital spectra.

The spectra have been collected in range 4200-10000 cm-1 (=2.4 – 1 micrometers).


„ISP NIR Spectra“ is the biggest and newest NIR library available on the market. This spectral library has been designed for users

who use their NIR spectrometer not only for quantitative and chemometric analysis, but also want to identify unknown samples

or just want to use the library as reference spectra database.


ISP means “Intergrating Sphere” and at the same time “Identify Sample”.


Technical parameters:

The „ISP NIR Spectra“ were collected using the FT-NIR Spectrometer equipped with Integrating Sphere Accessory.

Resolution: standard 4cm-1

Customized resolution: upon special request the spectra can be delivered in customized resolution to reach better correspondence

with spectra collected by customer NIR instrument

Spectral range in wavenumbers units: 4200-10000 cm-1

Spectral range in wavelength units: 2.4 – 1 micrometers

Only one spectrum/compound covering the mentioned spectral range

Typical information about the sample includes (when available):

Compound name including synonyms

CAS number

Chemical formula

Molecular weight

Additional information about the sample like manufacturer and comments.


Download a free NIR library of 30 NIR spectra to check the compatibility of you instrument with the „ISP NIR Spectra“.


Samples were selected and NIR spectra collected 2010-2012.


This library is available as digital searchable library compatible with your spectroscopic software. Visit the „Download“ section

of our webpage to select the correct library format. The spectra are available in wavenumbers (cm-1) units or wavelength (micrometer) units.

Also the library can be delivered with SEARCH software or in *.pdf format (if you do not have a spectroscopic software)

The near infrared spectral library „ISP NIR Spectra” can be purchased as a complete collection of over 6049 spectra or

as following application specific sublibraries.


The list of spectra is in *.pdf format. You must have Adobe Acrobat Reader(TM) to display the list.
