Anasys Instruments nanoIR2 combines the nanoscale spatial resolution capabilities of atomic force microscopy (AFM) with infrared spectroscopy (IR) to characterise and identify chemical species. It is an easy to use and powerful multifunctional platform with a full-featured AFM and nanoscale thermal & mechanical analysis. The nanoIR2 system features top-side illumination which greatly expands the range of samples that can be studied. AFM-IR is used for soft materials, including organics, polymers, composites and life sciences.

Features include:

  • Expands nanoscale IR to a broad range of real world samples
  • New resonance enhanced mode enables nanoscale IR on
  • Rich, interpretable IR spectra
  • Powerful, full featured AFM with standard imaging modes
  • Multifunctional measurements including integrated thermal and mechanical property mapping
  • Designed and built for productivity and rapid time-to-results

Proven ease and use of productivity on real world samples:

The AFM-IR technology has already been adopted by leading scientists at major universities, research institutions and global chemical companies. Customers are now highly productive, generating dozens of scientific publications and presentations.

AFM-IR Applications:

The nanoIR2 system can be used on a broad range of applications. This technique is well-suited for organic materials, which include but are not limited to polymeric multilayer films, polymer blends, biological specimens and single particle analysis.
