Simultaneous submicron IR and Raman microscopy – A World first

Dr. Mustafa Kansiz 
Director of Product Management
Photothermal Spectroscopy Corp

“Combined Raman microscopy and IR microscopy…has never been achieved on the same spot, at the same time, with the same resolution.”
Mustafa Kansiz

O-PTIR surpasses accepted limitations of IR microscopy, ushering in a new era of analytical capabilities and problem solving. Coupled with simultaneous Raman microscopy, IRaman is now finally possible! This webinar will discuss O-PTIR and its major benefits across a range of application areas, including defect and failure analysis, polymers, materials, life science, pharmaceuticals and forensics.

O-PTIR: Solving two of the biggest problems in IR spectroscopy

Achieving sub-micron IR spectroscopy using a non-contact optical technique

Two of the biggest problems in IR spectroscopy are poor spatial resolution, and sample preparation requirements to avoid traditional ATR contact-related limitations. Photothermal Spectroscopy Corp is overcoming both of these limitations with a breakthrough technology based on optical photothermal IR spectroscopy (O-PTIR). This webinar discusses O-PTIR and its major benefits in the field of IR spectroscopy, including:

  • Sub-micron spatial resolution
  • Transmission FTIR quality spectra in reflection mode on thick samples
  • Non-contact optical technique with none of the limitations of ATR
  • Spatial resolution and sample preparation advantages found in Raman technology, with IR sensitivity
  • Works on any sample prepared for IR or Raman spectroscopy
