Bruker today announced that it has launched its nanoIR3-s Broadband spectroscopy system.
The nanoIR3-s Broadband is an advanced nanoscale FTIR spectroscopy system for researchers. It uses scattering scanning near-field optical microscopy with femtosecond IR laser technology for better chemical imaging in polymeric materials and life science applications. It can also be used in nanoscale optical imaging of 2D materials.
“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,” Dean Dawson, Bruker’s senior director and business manager for nanoIR products, said in a press release. “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.”
Bruker’s nanoIR3-s Braodband system provides broad, tunable mid-IR spectral range with high power and low noise while delivering correlation to FTIR spectroscopy, according to the company. The system gives researchers broad coverage for nanoscale chemical applications in 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 Markus B. Raschke, a professor at the 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.”
