Polymeric Thin Films

Polymeric Thin Films, Monolayers and Blends

The nanoIR3 provides nanoscale FTIR spectroscopy that directly correlates to bulk FTIR databases providing true, model free nanoscale FTIR spectra for a wide range of polymers. It provides the highest resolution chemical and material property mapping capabilities of any systems with resolution to 10 nm.

Failure Analysis

Semiconductor Failure Analysis

Failure analysis and materials characterization groups within industrial companies are focused on solving problems to help improve process development and resolve process related problems to help their organization saves costs and increase revenue. The nanoIR3 provides a complete nanoscale FTIR, nanoscale chemical imaging and materials characterization platform. It combines two complementary nanoscale IR techniques, AFM-IR and scattering SNOM coupled with AFM based materials property mapping. The nanoIR platform is productive and reliable, getting you productive within a day.

Life Sciences

Life Sciences

Life sciences research is continually achieving new discoveries due to new nanoscale IR spectroscopy. The nanoIR3 provides unrivalled nanoscale FTIR spectroscopy as well as chemical, structural and mechanical property mapping of a broad range of biological materials. Researchers using AFM-IR have generated groundbreaking conclusions in protein secondary structures that are linked to disease formation.

Mechanical Property Mapping

Mechanical Property Mapping

Lorentz Contact Resonance (LCR) creates nanomechanical contact resonance spectra that can be used to differentiate materials based on their viscoelastic properties. LCR maps the distribution of multiple components of a sample, and allows precise location of the probe for subsequent chemical and/or thermal analysis. Since LCR uses Anasys Instruments proprietary self-heating ThermaLever™ probes, it can also rapidly measure temperature dependent variations in a sample’s mechanical properties. The technique has provided exciting results for polymer blends, multilayer films, composite materials, and life sciences.
