Combined Atomic Force Microscopy-Raman Systems from Veeco Instruments

The atomic force microscopy technology company, Veeco Instruments, has launched the IRIS (Integrated Raman Imaging System) models for the BioScope Catalyst and Innova AFMs (Atomic Force Microscopes). These IRIS models offer high accessibility and integration for the combined Raman spectroscopy and atomic force microscopy research.

Integrated AFM-Raman Imaging System

The newly released models feature user-friendly innovations and proprietary AFM performance, enabling to easily generate enhanced AFM data routinely. The new IRIS systems use optical access and scanning mechanisms that facilitate high spatial resolution in material research.

The Innova-IRIS and Catalyst-IRIS models are TERS-ready, and are compatible with Raman systems, as well as, inverted optical microscopes. The system integration helps to protect the abilities of every single component, hence, offers better nanoscale information.

Veeco’s General Manager and Vice President of AFM Business, David Rossi, stated that the company’s innovations such as the ScanAsyst Imaging Mode have enabled easy execution of specialized experiments for researchers. With the new systems, Veeco has leveraged the technological development to bring together the capabilities of co-located Raman and AFM research to required applications, Rossi said. Such applications may include biological samples, nanostructured materials, and photovoltaic devices. He added that the capability of correlating quality information from Raman spectroscopy and nanoscale mechanical properties of Veeco AFM will lead to new levels of research.
