Bruker’s large-sample Dimension IconIR system combines nanoscale infrared (IR) spectroscopy and scanning probe microscopy (SPM) on one platform to deliver the most advanced spectroscopy, imaging, and property mapping capabilities available for academic researchers and industrial users. Incorporating decades of research and technological innovation, IconIR provides unrivaled performance based on and building off the industry-best AFM measurement capabilities of the Dimension Icon®. The system enables correlative microscopy and chemical imaging with enhanced resolution and monolayer sensitivity, while its unique large-sample architecture provides ultimate sample flexibility for the broadest range of applications.
In a single system, IconIR provides the highest performance for nanoscale infrared spectroscopy, chemical imaging resolution, and monolayer sensitivity.
Only Dimension IconIR delivers:
*The standard system supports samples up to 150 mm, with versions capable of accommodating larger samples also available.
Together with Bruker-exclusive PeakForce Tapping nanoscale property mapping and proprietary nanoIR spectroscopy technology, the Dimension IconIR system's large-sample platform is uniquely well-suited for correlative studies of materials and active nanoscale systems in electrical or chemically reactive environments—even complex systems with strong mechanical heterogeneities.
Bruker is the innovator for photothermal AFM-IR-based nanoIR spectroscopy with our patented, unique suite of nanoIR modes. These modes enable IconIR to provide high-speed, high performance spectra that correlate to FT-IR spectroscopy. The variety of modes support the measurement of a wide range of samples for both industrial and academic users.
The Icon’s industry-leading AFM performance and Bruker’s patented Tapping AFM-IR imaging together enhance the spatial resolution and sample accessibility of our nanoIR technology, extending its application to segments not currently addressed by the photothermal AFM-IR technique.
Utilizing Bruker’s new patented Surface Sensitive AFM-IR Mode, IconIR significantly decreases chemical probing depth from greater than 500 nanometers to tens of nanometers, while eliminating the need for cross-sectioning to seamlessly combine high spatial resolution and high surface sensitivity chemical imaging.
