Revolutionizes nanoscale spectroscopy by combining nano-FTIR with nano-Raman

Provides complete vibrational analysis at the nanoscale:

thumb up Same spot for nano-FTIR and nano-Raman/PL spectroscopy
Using modular design and multi-port access to the AFM-tip

thumb up Maximum TERS signal even with standard AFM probes
by simple alignment using strong elastic light scattering from the tip

thumb up Single user interface for all measurement modes
optimized for storing and organizing multidimensional correlative data

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 simple alignment procedure using complementary IR or visible scattering, which delivers robust nanoscale Raman and PL performance even with standard metallized AFM tips.
