About nanoscale IR Spectroscopy:
AFM-based IR spectroscopy (nanoIR spectroscopy) is a nanoscale spectroscopy and chemical imaging technique that uses an AFM probe tip as an IR absorbance detector, enabling spatial resolution of better than 25 nm. nanoIR spectroscopy is being used in a large variety of exciting applications in materials science to life sciences. Examples include polymer interface chemistry, blends, monolayers, protein secondary structure, sub-cellular composition, calcified tissues, bacteria, viruses and DNA. Unlike other AFM based nanoscale spectroscopy techniques such as Tip-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (TERS), nanoIR spectroscopy is a robust technique that has been successfully used being used to investigate diverse problems in both academic and industrial research.
