Bruker delivers nanoIR3-s Broadband
Bruker has released the nanoIR3-s Broadband, described as the most advanced nanoscale FTIR spectroscopy system available to researchers.
The system combines Bruker's nanoIR3-s s-SNOM (scattering Scanning Near-field Optical Microscopy) based platform with advanced femtosecond IR laser technology.
According to the company, this combination provides researchers with the opportunity to make groundbreaking new discoveries in the field of nanoscale FTIR spectroscopy and chemical imaging for advanced polymeric materials and life science applications.
It is also applicable in nanoscale optical imaging of 2D materials, including plasmonic fields and nanophotonic structures.
Bruker claims most advanced s-scanning near-field optical microscopy/atomic force microscopy-IR system commercially available.
The new nanoIR3-s Broadband system promises to provide the broadest, tunable mid-IR spectral range with the highest power and the lowest noise, while also delivering unrivalled correlation to FTIR spectroscopy
Taken together, the new system provides the broadest coverage for nanoscale chemical applications for both organic and inorganic materials, claims Bruker.
"Brukers' nanoIR technology has a demonstrated broad application space, from energy science, environmental science, and chemical physics to quantum materials, nanochemical analytics - you name it," says Professor Markus B. Raschke, University of Colorado.
"With the latest light source technology that our team has helped develop, we have a broadband laser with superior stability, tunability and spectral irradiance,” he adds. “Taken together, this is the most advanced, combined s-SNOM/AFM-IR system on the market, powered by the most advanced light source."
