IR-neaSCOPE+fs nanoscale ultrafast pump-probe

Enables ultrafast science at the nanoscale providing:
  • Fully integrated turn-key system
    for concentrating on research rather than on technology,
  • Highest temporal resolution
    using chirp-free optics for light focusing and collection,
  • Unprecedented customization potential
    by flexible hardware & software interfaces.

IR-neaSCOPE+fs – pump-probe spectroscopy at 10 fs temporal and 10 nm spatial resolution

IR-neaSCOPE+fs pushes the spatial resolution limits of pump-probe spectroscopy. Based on nano-FTIR fs-laser system, it provides a fully integrated hardware & software solution for capturing time dynamic phenomena at the nanoscale. Patented dual-beam design, dispersion-free optics and optional SDK provide compatibility with a large variety of pump & probe lasers for the realization of sophisticated high-power experimental setups and ground-breaking ultrafast research.



Allows for nanoscale chemical identification by combining s-SNOM with FTIR.



Studies dynamic processes in nanomaterials by combining pump-probe spectroscopy with nano-FTIR.
