KBr Disc Technique: This widely practiced method consists of grinding and mixing a sample with dry KBr or KCl powder, which is then compressed within an evacuated die to produce a transparent disc, since KBr and KCl are transparent from the ultra-violet well into the infrared. The method may be used for investigation in the ultra-violet and the visible as well as the infrared region.
