World premiere: nano-Raman (TERS) Mapping Live on an Exhibition Booth!
Nano-Raman performed with tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (TERS), and especially nano-Raman imaging, still has the reputation of being a difficult measurement.
Last week, to demonstrate that this can now be performed under regular conditions, the HORIBA team has set up a “XploRA nano” system on a standard optical table running without air damping.
TERS imaging was perform without any trouble even when visitors were stopping by to discuss the technique with the team.
“Thanks to our unique integrated solution with AIST-NT (Novato, CA, USA), using tuning fork TERS probes manufactured by HORIBA and the compact XploRA Raman spectrometer, the system is really easy to set up and get running. The extreme stability of the ensemble really help keeping things aligned for long periods of time allowing such imaging performance. All is ran from an interface we spent quite some time optimizing for ease-of-use and signal performance. Today, the technology is available and researchers can concentrate on developing exciting applications. This is a breakthrough in label-free nanoscale chemical imaging” said E. Leroy, nano-Raman Product Manager.
The XploRA nano builds on the proven latest LabSpec 6 Spectroscopy Suite. LabSpec 6 provides advanced data processing and acquisition control, assuring fast and reliable results. It combines simplicity with powerful analytical functionality, and opens up a full range of experiment protocols, from basic spectrum acquisition to complex analysis.
HORIBA Scientific’s new XploRA nano provides guaranteed high performance and sensitivity, with intuitive simplicity, making it the ultimate instrument for AFM-Raman and nano-Raman imaging.
