Anasys Instruments Nanoscale Infrared Spectroscopy, Nano-IR, AFM-IR

Based in Santa Barbara, California, Anasys Instruments and our scientific collaborators pioneered the field of nanoscale infrared absorption spectroscopy and imaging. Our team is focused on providing robust chemical analysis with nanometer scale spatial resolution. With a researcher’s productivity always in mind, we deliver integrated hardware and software solutions that clear the path to your next discovery. Nanoscale IR spectroscopy complemented with thermal and mechanical analysis add a special dimension to AFM imaging.

Anasys product line

  • New High speed, high resolution, full spectra AFM-IR measurement in seconds
  • 10nm chemical imaging spatial resolution with Tapping AFM-IR
  • High speed, rich, interpretable IR spectra that directly correlates to FTIR
  • Multi-functional nanoscale property mapping modes with full featured AFM
  • “Anasys engineered” for productivity and reliability

The nanoIR2-FS is the latest generation nanoscale IR spectroscopy, chemical imaging, and property mapping system for both materials and life science applications. The system provides spectroscopic capabilities that provide excellent correlation to FTIR transmission spectra on a wide range of material types, enabling nanoscale FTIR measurement.

The system also provides IR-based chemical imaging to provide mapping of chemical variations of the feature of interest. Unique Point Spectroscopy capabilities provide both spectroscopy and chemical imaging with a single source.

Nano IR2-s

The only nanoscale IR spectroscopy and imaging platform with both: AFM-IR, True model-free IR absorption spectroscopy and s-SNOM, Sub-20 nm complex optical property imaging for life sciences, polymers, organics, graphene, 2D materials, photonics, and inorganics

“The National Physical Laboratory requires extremely precise and reliable measurements and the nanoIR2-s provided exactly the solution we desired.”
“The National Graphene Metrology Centre at NPL will be using the new nano-IR2s system from Anasys Instruments for both nearfield infrared spectroscopy and imaging. Anasys Instruments have been very responsive to our needs and provided exactly the solution we desired. The instrument itself performed out of the box. This level of quality in the technology we use helps NPL provide the most informative and reliable measurement data to our customers. “

Nano IR2

The nanoIR2™ platform from Anasys Instruments is the second generation of our AFM based IR spectroscopy platform. It is an easy to use and powerful multifunctional platform with full-featured AFM and nanoscale thermal & mechanical analysis in addition to IR spectroscopy. It features top-side IR illumination which greatly expands the samples that can be studied with the AFM-IR technique.The nanoIR2™ platform from Anasys Instruments is the second generation of our AFM based IR spectroscopy platform.
