During this webinar, two experts in the technique of nanoscale IR spectroscopy in the AFM (AFM-IR) describe the fundamentals of AFM-IR and how and where it is used.
AFM-IR is used for chemical imaging and spectroscopy at the nanoscale.
AFM-IR provides chemical imaging and spectroscopy at the nanoscale with recent improvements in speed, resolution, and sensitivity.
In this webinar, the presenters discuss the AFM-IR technique for chemical imaging and spectroscopy at the nanoscale with 10 nm spatial resolution. Craig Prater, Ph.D., introduces the technique, and Kevin Kjoller, Ph.D. presents applications examples.
During the first part of the webinar, Dr. Prater covers the following:
During the first part of the webinar, Dr. Kjoller presents various applications of AFM-IR in material science, life sciences, and polymer research. He also describes complementary techniques like nano thermal analysis, scattering SNOM, and fast mapping AFM-IR.
Finally, Dr. Prater describes Tapping AFM-IR, a new mode that allows for softer samples and higher resolution down to 10 nm. Tapping AFM-IR works by oscillating the AFM tip and pulsing the infrared laser asynchronously. This provides chemical contrast that is insensitive to long range background forces.
