Analysis of chemical composition of chondrites and comets

Broadband nano-FTIR spectroscopy and hyperspectral imaging is a method that can measure any sample measurable by AFM. In addition, the measured FT-IR spectra can be compared with spectral libraries to perform a straightforward chemical analysis.

Characterization of cometary dust by nano-FTIR method

The measured reflectance and nano-FTIR data in the image were measured from comet dust grain using a neaSNOM microscope. The spectra clearly show the different chemical composition of the different points of the sample, and the measured data show that there was a rapid cooling in the sample and it can also be concluded that this comet formed at extremely high temperatures.

IR-neaSCOPE+fs is designed for pump-probe spectroscopy with 10fs temporal and 10nm spatial resolution: it enables ultra-fast nanoscale science.
IR-neaSCOPE+s enables IR imaging and nano-FTIR spectroscopy by detecting radiation reflected from a standard AFM tip. It is a universal solution for all types of materials. It measures both absorbed and reflected radiation simultaneously and uses the fastest and most reliable modules for nano-imaging and nano-spectroscopy.
IR-neaSCOPE+TERs is a revolution in nano-spectroscopy thanks to a combination of nano-FTIR and Raman spectroscopy techniques, providing complete spectral analysis.
cryo-neaSCOPE+xs is a pioneering instrument for nanoscale optical imaging and spectroscopy in an extreme cryogenic environment.
