Automated 3-D Chemical Imaging Combined with AFM

Jan 30 2008

WITec has introduced the alpha500 and alpha700 microscopy series for automated Confocal Raman Imaging and Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) on large samples. The alpha500 and alpha700 are the first instruments on the market to combine Confocal Raman Microscopy for 3-D Chemical Imaging and AFM for high resolution structural imaging in an automated system.

A motorized sample stage with a travel range of 150x100 mm for the alpha500 and 350x300 mm for the alpha700 allows multi-area/multi-point measurements or overview scans on an arbitrary, user-defined number of measurement points. Specific automated functions such as an integrated auto-focus and an automatic AFM-tip approach guarantee that standardized routine measurement procedures or manually defined sequences can be performed without any ongoing process control by an operator. The instruments significantly reduce the overall experiment duration and deliver a greater amount of data in a given time for resource-minimized routine research or high-level quality control, bringing results to market or publication even faster.
