Scattering-type near-field microscope (NeaSpec)
What we can offer:
Nanoscale non-destructive chemical and structural characterization based on infrared spectroscopy (nano-FTIR) and microscopy (s-SNOM).
Nanoscale polymer identification and analysis (polymer multilayers, blends, nanofibers, bio-polymers, rubbers, conducting polymers).
Identification and analysis of biomaterials (proteins, phosphates, DNA, carbohydrates, acids, etc.) in biological samples (human bone and teeth, cells, bacteria, viruses, phages, spores, fibers, membranes, etc.).
Identification and mapping of active ingredients in drugs.
Analysis of cosmetic products (i.e. cosmetics in human hair).
Phase identification in inorganic and organic materials: material stress (i.e. SiC, Si), insulator-to-metal transitions (i.e. VO2), polymer crystallinity, mapping of minerals, organic crystals, etc.
Interesting for (with the system):
Polymer and rubber industry, life sciences, pharmaceutics, cosmetics, agriculture, material science, electronics, Geology, Semiconductor industry…
