Using a proprietary technique based upon Optical Photothermal IR (O-PTIR) spectroscopy, Mirage breaks the diffraction limit and bridges the gap between conventional IR microspectroscopy and nanoscale IR spectroscopy.
A fast and easy to use non-contact optical technique
Mirage overcomes the IR diffraction limit with an innovative technique, Optical Photothermal Infrared (O-PTIR) spectroscopy.
A tunable pulsed mid-IR laser induces photothermal effects into a sample surface, which are measured using a visible probe laser focused on the sample. The measurements are collected in a fast, easy to use manner without the need for contact-based techniques like ATR spectroscopy.
