New Product To Be Announced at Photonics West 2009
November 17, 2008: Femtosecond ready NSOM-AFM-STM

Conventional microscopes have fundamentally limited resolution due to diffraction, but there is no such restriction for near-field interactions, that is why near-field microscopy is becoming important nano-science technique.
Possible applications of this tool are characterization of photonic nanodevices, bio photonics (investigation of cells, viruses, DNA molecules), nano-chemistry (chemical reactions control), nanoscale photolithography (processing of photosensitive polymers). NSOM delivered femto-second pulses can be used for nanometer-scale surface topology modification. Temporal resolution provided by femtosecond laser opens wide range of new possibilities such as: transport dynamics studies of nanostructured materials, pump-probe experiments, ultra fast coherent and Raman spectroscopy. Spatial optical resolution is better than 100 nm and temporal resolution in the pulse operation mode is better than 100 fs. Tunable CW operation for spectral measurements is also available.  Request a quote
