Scanning confocal Raman spectrometer with atomic force microscope / near-field scanning optical microscope

eagle-i ID


Resource Type

  1. Raman-Atomic force microscope


  1. Resource Description
    Atomic force microscope attached to 532 nm and 660 nm laser sources and confocal Raman spectroscopy system. Spatial resolution is about 300 nm. Two full-featured microscopes allow imaging of both opaque and transparent samples. The inverted microscope system has an oil immersion lens and high numerical aperture for high-resolution optical imaging. Near-field scanning optical microscopy (NSOM) and photomultiplier tube yield ~100 nm optical resolution. The raman spectrometer has edge and notch filters and a full complement of diffraction gratings. The high-resolution CCD camera is cooled for noise reduction. Various types of systems can be investigated with this instrument: • graphene, carbon nanotubes and other carbon materials • semiconductor devices • nanotubes, nanowires, and quantum dots • polymers • optical devices such as semiconductor lasers, waveguides, and plasmonic devices Investigation of cellular tissue, DNA, viruses and other biological objects and in situ temperature measurements can be carried out.
