Entry model for nanoscale IR imaging & spectroscopy

IR-neaSCOPE is designed for nanoscale analysis that only requires measurements of IR absorbance. It detects laser-induced photothermal expansion in the sample using mechanical AFM-IR detection. Requiring no IR detector and interferometry, IR neaSCOPE provides a cost-efficient solution most suitable for samples with large thermal expansion coefficients (e.g. polymers, biomaterials, etc.). IR-neaSCOPE delivers IR absorption imaging, point-spectroscopy and hyperspectral imaging. It is fully upgradable to IR-neaSCOPE+s for advanced capabilities.

Sets the benchmark in nanoscale tip-enhanced IR

IR-neaSCOPE+s is designed for providing complete chemical analysis and field mapping at 10 nm spatial resolution. It utilizes state-of-the-art technologies of near-field microscopy to measure both IR absorption and reflectivity, as well as amplitude and phase of local electromagnetic fields. It provides IR nanoimaging, point-spectroscopy and hyperspectral analysis with CW illumination sources as well as nano-FTIR spectroscopy using broadband lasers and synchrotron sources. IR-neaSCOPE+s excels in both organic and inorganic materials analysis providing the broadest range of demonstrated applications and novel near-field methodologies such as quantitative s-SNOM or sub-surface measurements.

Enables ultrafast science at the nanoscale

neaSCOPE+fs pushes the spatial resolution limits of pump-probe spectroscopy. Accessible nano-FTIR fs-laser system 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.

Revolutionizes near-field optical microscopy

VIS-neaSCOPE+s is optimized for robust amplitude- and phase-resolved vector field mapping in the visible spectral range. It utilizes best-in-class s-SNOM technologies for near-field imaging and spectroscopy of plasmonic nanostructures and waveguide structures. VIS-neaSCOPE+s provides the most flexible beam-path configuration capable of side, bottom illumination and polarization resolved-measurements for the highest application potential. It is upgradable for IR analysis and TERS.

Provides complete nanoscale vibrational analysis

IR-neaSCOPE+TERs combines nano-FTIR with TERS and Photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy for an ultimate characterization using elastic and inelastic light scattering from the same nanoscale spot. It allows for a simple alignment procedure using complementary IR or visible scattering, which delivers robust nanoscale Raman and PL performance even with standard metallized AFM tips.

Brings terahertz analysis to the nanoscale

THz-neaSCOPE+s enables THz imaging and spectroscopy at the nanoscale. A fully integrated, turn-key configuration based on a compact THz-TDS system allows immediate investigations of conductivity phenomena in semiconducting nanostructures, 2D nanomaterials and novel complex material systems. THz-neaSCOPE+s also supports various free-space coupled THz and sub-THz sources and provides unprecedently large access to the probing tip. In conjunction with the most flexible software integration among all SPM instruments on the market, THz-neaSCOPE+s is the most flexible instrument for nanoscale THz analysis.

Empowers to discover new science

cryo-neaSCOPE+xs enables near-field optical nanoimaging and nanospectroscopy at extreme cryogenic temperatures. It features high-quality near-field measurements in an unmatched spectral range from visible to IR and even THz frequencies. The system thus provides access to a full range of relevant energy scales and allows studying physical phenomena at temperatures down and below 10 K. cryo-neaSNOM+xs is based on a fully automated dry cryostat for easy cryogen-free operation with fastest in class turnaround times. The system provides confocal access to the sample and natively supports electrical transport measurements via integrated feedthroughs for ultimate cryogenic research.
