IR-neaSCOPE is designed for nanoscale analysis that only requires measurements of IR absorption. It detects laser-induced photothermal expansion in the sample using mechanical AFM-IR detection. Requiring no IR detector and interferometry, IR-neaSCOPE provides a cost-efficient solution most suitable for samples with large thermal expansion coefficients (e.g. polymers, biomaterials, etc.).


VIS-neaSCOPE+s is optimised for robust amplitude and phase-resolved vector field mapping in the visible spectral range. It utilises best-in-class s-SNOM technologies for near-field imaging and spectroscopy of plasmonic nanostructures and waveguide structures. VIS-neaSCOPE+s provides the most flexible beam-path configuration capable of polarisation resolved-measurements, side and bottom illumination synchronised with the sample motion.


THz-neaSCOPE+s enables THz imaging and spectroscopy at the nanoscale. A fully integrated, turn-key configuration based on a compact THz-TDS system enables immediate investigations of conductivity phenomena in semiconducting nanostructures, 2D nanomaterials and novel complex material systems.


cryo-neaSCOPE+xs enables near-field optical nanoimaging and nanospectroscopy at extreme cryogenic temperatures. It features high-quality near-field measurements in an unmatched spectral range from visible to IR and even THz frequencies. The system thus provides access to a full range of relevant energy scales and allows studying physical phenomena at temperatures down and below 10 K.
