“OPTIR has the potential to become a fundamental tool in the analysis of cultural heritage “

Product shot of the mIrage, O-PTIR plus Raman microscope

The world’s first simultaneous IR+Raman microscopy system is a unique dual modality platform with all the advantages of an O‑PTIR microscope combined.

“The capability of the mIRage system to provide submicron simultaneous IR+Raman is truly unique and offers significant advantages compared to other technologies. Moreover, Photothermal team have been amazing to work with!”

“The mIRage obtains valuable information about the structure of multilayered plastic films and ageing of adhesives not available to conventional FTIR and Raman. O-PTIR is valuable for the development of high-quality plastic recyclables”

“mIRage, with its submicron simultaneous IR+Raman, is a great addition to the toolbox for the new materials characterization. It provided important insight into the unexpected mixing of seemingly immiscible bioplastic composites at the interface region not observed by previous techniques”

The world’s first simultaneous IRaman (IR-Raman) microscopy system is a unique dual modality platform that combines all the advantages of O-PTIR with complementary Raman microscopy via simultaneous detection of the visible probe laser.

“mIRage is truly extraordinary. Within weeks of installation we finished measurements for our first paper. It should be called the ‘mIRacle‘! “

O-PTIR enables unique breakthrough applications in the fields of failure analysis, pharmaceuticals, life science and more.

“Our first user experiment in the field of Alzheimer’s went so well that the researchers are submitting a manuscript to a high impact journal. The OPTIR is a disruptive technology.”
