Nordic AFM Days 2019

Nordic AFM Days 2019

Join us for a two day conference in Copenhagen about AFM and nanoscale IR spectroscopy (AFM-IR, s-SNOM and O-PTIR).

Analysing Semiconductors with Nanoscale IR Spectroscopy

Characterise Semiconductor Materials with Nanoscale IR

How nanoscale infrared spectroscopy can be used to measure semiconductor materials in defect and contamination analysis, and fabrication.

Silicon Wafer Contamination

Identifying Contaminants on Semiconductors with Nanoscale IR Spectroscopy

Unambiguously identify organic contamination on silicon wafers and micro-electronics with a AFM-IR technique, using the Bruker Anasys nanoIR3.

Bruker Anasys - Nordic Distributor

New Partner: Bruker Anasys NanoIR & Thermal Measurement Instruments

We’re now the official distributor for Bruker Anasys nanoscale infrared spectroscopy & thermal measurement instruments in the Nordic region (Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Iceland & Norway).

nanoIR2-s nanoscale IR spectroscopy with AFM-IR and s-SNOM

New Nanoscale IR Spectroscopy Platform Combines AFM-IR and s-SNOM

A new instrument from Anasys Instruments is the only nanoscale IR spectroscopy and imaging platform with both robust nanoscale IR absorption spectroscopy via AFM-IR and sub-20nm complex optical property imaging via sSNOM (scattering scanning near field optical microscopy). Follow Blue Scientific on Linked In for updates: UPDATE: This system has now been replaced with the Bruker Anasys […]

Polymer Additives Surface Blooming Identification using AFM-IR

Polymer Additives Surface Blooming – AFM-IR Paper

Diagnosing Surface Blooming of Polymer Additives Additives impart improved performance characteristics in polymer systems such as anti-oxidation, lubrication and UV protection. Surface blooming of additives can alter the bulk and surface properties of the material, leading to a range of undesirable outcomes from mechanical failure to cross contamination. For plastics in medical devices, changes of […]

AFM-IR for protein secondary structure

Analysing Nanoscale Protein Secondary Structure on Amyloid Fibril with AFM-IR

AFM-IR can be used to study nanoscale protein secondary structure. This method provides valuable insights into biologically important macromolecules, which are not available using other analytical techniques. Blue Scientific is the exclusive distributor for Anasys AFM-IR instruments in the UK. If you have any questions or would like to see a demonstration, please get in touch:  Contact us on 01223 […]

AFM-IR Webinar

AFM-IR Webinar – 18th June 2015

AFM-IR is a breakthrough technique for simultaneous morphological and chemical characterisation at the nanoscale. It offers over 100x improvement in spatial resolution, compared to traditional FT-IR and Raman microscopy. A 1 hour webinar entitled “Nanoscale IR Spectroscopy for Polymers and Life Sciences” will be hosted by our partners Anasys Instruments on Thursday 18th June at 3pm BST. […]

Dow Fellow Presents AFM-IR Talk at ISPAC 2015 Polymer Conference

Dow Fellow Dr Gregory Meyers will present an invited talk about AFM based nanoscale IR spectroscopy on polymer blends and films at ISPAC 2015, the 28th International Symposium on Polymer Analysis and Characterisation.  Nanoscale IR spectroscopy instruments  Contact us on 01223 422 269 or info@blue-scientific.com About AFM-IR AFM-IR is a new technique that uses an Atomic Force […]

Water uptake in organic coatings using AFM-IR

Mapping Water Uptake in Organic Coatings using AFM-IR

Professor Stuart Lyon of the University of Manchester, a Blue Scientific customer, has  published a paper about mapping water uptake in organic coatings using AFM-IR. Water Uptake in Organic Coatings Paints are commonly used to isolate metals from corrosive environments. The breakdown of protection offered by organic coatings over long periods of time is an important process in corrosion science. […]
