• Advances in Combined Atomic Force and Raman - AN136 5.1MB
This application note looks both at the complementary information gained from combining AFM and Raman spectroscopy and how a researcher having access to a combined system can benefit from the additional information available.
• AFM and Raman TERS - Correlated Imaging and Tip Enhanced Raman Scattering 2.8MB
Co-localized AFM and Raman instrumentation allows researchers to interrogate samples using both scanning probe techniques and optical spectroscopy, yielding detailed information about nanoscale properties and composition. Diffraction-limited AFM-Raman experiments are straightforward as is the interpretation of data. TERS provides chemical information on the nanometer scale. TERS experiments are straightforward to execute but may require special consideration of the tip-sample interaction in the optical near-field for data interpretation.
