A scientific paper published by UNSW highlighting new implications for engineered nanophotonics, using nanoscale FTIR and s-SNOM chemical imaging.
The Bruker nanoIR3-s Broadband is the most advanced s-SNOM based nanoscale FTIR spectroscopy system available, with the broadest spectral range, high resolution nanochemical and nano-optical imaging capabilities.
How nanoscale infrared spectroscopy can be used to measure semiconductor materials in defect and contamination analysis, and fabrication.
Unambiguously identify organic contamination on silicon wafers and micro-electronics with a AFM-IR technique, using the Bruker Anasys nanoIR3.
We’re now the official distributor for Bruker Anasys nanoscale infrared spectroscopy & thermal measurement instruments in the Nordic region (Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Iceland & Norway).
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 […]
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 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. […]
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. […]
