THz-neaSCOPE+s nanoscopy

Brings terahertz analysis to the nanoscale:
  • Largest compatibility to broadband & single-frequency THz sources with complete spectral coverage by using all-reflective optics,
  • Comprehensive correlative analysis with photo-current mapping, pump-probe spectroscopy & nano-FTIR by modular system & multi-port beam-path design,
  • Low cost, compact and fully integrated THz nanoscopy based on affordable THz TDS technology.

THz-neaSCOPE+s – a versatile platform for nanoscale terahertz (THz) near-field imaging and spectroscopy

THz-neaSCOPE+s enables THz imaging and spectroscopy at the nanoscale. A fully integrated, turn-key configuration based on a compact THz-TDS system enables 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 instrument on the market, THz-neaSCOPE+s is the most powerful instrument for nanoscale THz analysis.



Delivers nanoscale complex optical properties by combining THz laser-source with AFM.
