To obtain the desired spectra of samples, the spectroscopist will require a variety of accessories in addition to the instrument. The purpose of a number of these accessories is to hold the sample; that of others is to permit the use of additional techniques; and that of the remainder is to extend the usefulness of the instrument. This chapter will very briefly discuss the construction and use of the most common types of commercially available accessories. For a more detailed description, the spectroscopist should refer to the literature of the various instrument and accessory manufacturers.
