Simultaneous Submicron IR and Raman Microscopy/Imaging – Breaking the Limits of Traditional IR Microscopy with Optical Photothermal Infrared (O-PTIR)

Using Optical Photothermal IR (O-PTIR) spectroscopy, the accepted limitations of traditional IR microcopy are broken, providing for true submicron spatial resolution operating in contact-less reflection mode (no ATR), whilst providing for FTIR transmission-like data quality. Furthermore, it bridges the gap between conventional IR microspectroscopy and nanoscale IR spectroscopy. Now, in a world first, it also provides IR+Raman – simultaneous IR and Raman measurements at the same time, from the same spot and the same resolution.

The principles of operation, together with a range of applications will be discussed, from art conservation, polymer characterization, industrial defect analysis, through to life science applications, including live cell imaging in water, single cell bacteria and tissue analysis, all with sub-cellular spatial resolution.
