The mIRage™ IR Microscope is an innovative new 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
A fast and easy to use non-contact submicron optical spectroscopy
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.
Eliminates the need for thin sections
