Raman spectroscopy

The design of the alpha300 S Scanning Near-field Optical Microscope features a Confocal Microscope (CM), a Scanning Near-Field Optical Microscope (SNOM) and an Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) in a single instrument. By simply rotating the objective turret, the user can choose from among Confocal Microscopy, SNOM or AFM. All standard optical modes such as transmission, reflection and fluorescence are available. When using AFM-cantilever tips, all standard AFM modes are readily accessible. The alpha300 S has a modular design, is very flexible and can be easily configured for a wide variety of applications and individual requirements. The Confocal Raman Imaging Upgrade option for the WITec alpha300 S Scanning Near-field Optical Microscope allows the acquisition of Raman images from chemical investigations to be linked to the AFM topographic information from the same sample area. No transferring or touching of the sample is required as the two modes are easily accessible by just rotating the microscope turret. Even simultaneous AFM-Raman data acquisition is possible.
