AMSTERDAM, Sept. 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- At the 4th
Annual European Forum on Nanoscale IR Spectroscopy, Bruker (Nasdaq:
BRKR) today announced the release of the nanoIR3-s
Broadband™, the most advanced nanoscale FTIR spectroscopy
system available to researchers. The system combines Bruker's
industry-leading, high-performance, nanoIR3-s s-SNOM
(scattering Scanning Near-field Optical Microscopy) based platform
with the most advanced femtosecond IR laser technology. This
combination uniquely 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
The novel nanoIR3-s Broadband system sets new
standards in nano-IR spectroscopy and nanochemical imaging. It
provides 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.
"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," said 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. Taken together, this is the
most advanced, combined s-SNOM/AFM-IR system on the market, powered
by the most advanced light source."
"The nanoIR3-s Broadband system comprehensively
addresses the requirements for nanoscale FTIR broadband
spectroscopy and high-resolution imaging for a range of
applications, including 2D materials, polymeric materials, and
biomaterials," added Dean Dawson,
Bruker's Sr. Director and Business Manager, nanoIR Products.
"Building upon the highly respected Anasys technology, the new
system significantly expands multi-modal capabilities for the most
advanced research applications, while also focusing on
user-productivity improvements. This is simply the most advanced
nanoscale IR spectroscopy system available for materials
researchers in this field."
About nanoIR3-s Broadband
Broadband system provides a unique capability for nanoscale
imaging and spectroscopy over the entire mid-infrared spectral
range (2.5 to 15 μm / 4000 to 670 cm-1) by coupling with
a broadband light source based on a novel femtosecond OPO/DFG
laser. While featuring high laser power and wide spectral range,
this laser source can also switch its linewidth for imaging and
spectroscopy. Ultimately, the system provides the highest
performance spectroscopy and imaging for 2D/graphene materials,
while enabling nanoscale material property mapping and sample
environmental control options.
