The neaSNOM microscope equipped with a THz illumination unit were applied in ultrafast spectroscopy to take snapshots of super-fast electronic nano-motion. The scientists were able to record a 3D movie of electrons moving at the surface of a semiconductor nanowire.
nano-FTIR beats the diffraction limit in infrared bio-spectroscopy and probes secondary structure in individual protein complexes
neaSNOM/nano-FTIR allows infrared spectroscopy with a broadband laser-source at a spatial resolution of 20nm that is up to 1000-times better than in conventional FT-IR infrared spectroscopy.
Based on their unique near-field spectral signature infrared-active materials can be identified with neaSNOM.
Mapping nanoscale stress/strain fields around nanoindents in the surface of Silicon Carbide (SiC) crystals. Compressive/tensile strain occurs in bright/dark contrast respectively.
Recording “fingerprint” spectra of single viruses and polymer nanobeads allows for identification of individual particles.
neaSNOM enables spectroscopic identification of materials at the nanometer scale.
neaSNOM/nano-FTIR allows infrared spectroscpy with a thermal source at a spatial resolution of 100nm that is up to 200 times better than in conventional FT-IR infrared spectroscopy.
