Polyhydroxyalkanotes (PHAs) polymers have attracted much attention as a potential green chemistry alternative to petrochemical based polymers. PHAs are produced by a variety of bacteria and can be harvested for potential use as biodegradable and biocompatible... read more
Anasys Instruments and our scientific collaborators pioneered the field of nanoscale infrared absorption spectroscopy and imaging. Our team is focused on providing robust chemical analysis with nanometer scale spatial resolution. With a researcher’s productivity always in mind, we deliver integrated hardware and software solutions that clear the path to your next discovery. Nanoscale IR spectroscopy complemented with thermal and mechanical analysis add a special dimension to AFM imaging.
Nanoscale Infrared spectroscopy
Anasys Instruments, the world leader in nanoscale IR spectroscopy, is pleased to announce the nanoIR2-s™ nanoscale spectroscopy and imaging platform. The nanoIR2-s™ brings together two powerful techniques, AFM-IR and s-SNOM (scattering scanning near field optical microscopy). The AFM-IR is a proprietary Anasys technique that measures true model-free nanoscale IR absorption. The s-SNOM is a well-established scattered light measurement technique in the AFM field for sub-20nm complex optical property optical imaging.
Anasys Instruments has pioneered and introduced multiple major award-winning technologies: nanoscale thermal analysis (nano-TA™, afm+™), transition temperature microscopy (TTM™), and nanoscale IR Spectroscopy (AFM-IR, s-SNOM, nanoIR2™, nanoIR2s™). Our products and technologies have won multiple awards including, R&D100, Microscopy Today Innovation, MicroNano 25, and most recently the prestigious Ernst Abbe Award.
