Advanced nano-IR-spectroscopy for chemistry, materials and life sciences
February 10, 2016, 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Millennium Science Complex, Room N-201
Jay Anderson, Anasys Instruments
Curt Marcott, Light Light Solutions
For a diverse range of applications in materials and life sciences, this talk will focus on the Nano-IR capabilities for measuring chemical composition and optical properties with nanometer scale spatial resolution. AFM-IR based infrared spectroscopy with true model free spectra and scattering scanning near field optical microscopy (s-SNOM) both overcome the diffraction limit. Together they provide an unrivaled capability to perform nanoscale chemical/optical analysis on a diverse range of organic, inorganic, photonic and electronic materials.
Data will include measurements from:
- Skin to core variations in single fibers
- Polymer interfaces
- Protein secondary structure
- Graphene surface plasmons
- hBN phonon polariton, and nano-antennas
Refreshments will be provided.
