entry model for nanoscale IR imaging & spectroscopy

artefact-free absorption measurement

by decoupling efficiently optical from mechanical sample properties

maximum performance without sample damage

by accurate focusing of all illumination power onto the tip

high-quality results independent of user experience

using intuitive software with a guided user interface

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 and access to a larger variety of sample material classes.
