The mIRage™ IR microscope is an innovative new system uniquely providing submicron IR spectroscopy and imaging across a wide variety of applications.
Using a proprietary Anasys technique based upon photothermal IR spectroscopy, mirage breaks the diffraction limit and bridges the gap between conventional IR microspectroscopy and nanoscale IR spectroscopy.
The Mirage system overcomes the IR diffraction limit with an innovative technique utilizing the same fundamental principles that govern photothermal based AFM-IR.
A tunable pulsed mid-IR laser induces photothermal effects into a sample surface, which are measured using a visible probe laser focused on the sample.
The measurements are collected in a fast, easy to use manner without the need for contact-based techniques like ATR spectroscopy
Mirage provides unique, first and only data covering a wide range of applications including polymeric samples and materials, life science (bone, cells, hair), complex pharmaceutical samples and organic defects and contaminants in micro-electronics as well as many more.
