Scanning Nearfield Optical Microscope alpha300 S

February 12, 2014 5:05 am | WITec GmbH | Products

The design of the alpha300 S Scanning Near-field Optical Microscope features a Confocal Microscope (CM), a Scanning Near-Field Optical Microscope (SNOM) and an Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) in a single instrument. By simply rotating the objective turret, the user can choose from among Confocal Microscopy, SNOM or AFM. For scanning near-field optical microscopy, the alpha300 S uses unique and patented micro-fabricated Cantilever SNOM-sensors that significantly outperform standard fiber optic probes in resolution, transmission, ease of operation and reliability. The WITec alpha300 S microscope can be also combined with a confocal Raman imaging option.
