The only nanoscale IR spectroscopy platform with both AFM-IR and s-SNOM
The AFM-IR technique enables us, for the first time, to test decades-old hypotheses in surface engineering, corrosion and coatings science with speed, precision and at unprecedented spatial resolution.-Prof. Stuart Lyon Akzo Nobel Professor of Corrosion Control University of Manchester

We are the nanoscale analysis company. Our tools reveal hidden chemical and mechanical characteristics of materials through spectroscopy and thermal analysis at nanometer scales. With a researcher’s productivity always in mind, we deliver integrated hardware and software solutions that clear the path to your next discovery. Infrared spectroscopy, thermal and mechanical analysis combined add a special dimension to AFM imaging
Nanoscale Infrared spectroscopy
Anasys Instruments is proud to introduce nanoIR2™, the second generation of our nanoscale IR spectroscopy platform. Featuring top-side illumination, the nanoIR2 to greatly expands the range of samples that can be studied. It combines the nanoscale spatial resolution capabilities of atomic force microscopy (AFM) with infrared spectroscopy’s ability to characterize and identify chemical species. It is a robust, multifunctional platform centered around full-featured AFM and nanoscale thermal & mechanical analysis.
Since its founding, Anasys Instruments has developed and introduced multiple major award-winning technologies: nanoscale thermal analysis (nano-TA™), transition temperature microscopy (TTM™), AFM+ thermal analysis (afm+™), and AFM+ IR Spectroscopy (nanoIR™). The afm+ was a 2007/2008 R&D 100 Award winner, and the nanoIR won the honor in 2010 as well as a Microscopy Today Innovation Award.
