Submicron simultaneous IR+Raman microscope combines Optical Photothermal Infrared (O-PTIR) spectroscopy with Raman

The mIRage® IR microscope is an innovative new microscopy system uniquely providing sub-micron IR spectroscopy and imaging across a wide variety of applications.
Using a proprietary technique based upon Optical Photothermal IR (O-PTIR) spectroscopy, mIRage®
breaks the diffraction limit of traditional IR spectroscopy and bridges the gap between conventional IR microspectroscopy and nanoscale IR spectroscopy.

2023 interview with Dr. Mustafa Kansiz on the cutting edge technology O-PTIR, and how it will influence the field of infrared spectroscopy.
