Atomic Force Microscope/Raman Spectroscopy

Purchased in the fall of 2014, the new WiTec Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) and Confocal Raman Spectrometer is a multifunctional integrated system which allows users to do both AFM and Raman spectroscopy on the same sample, on the same instrument, using integrated software.  It also has a True Surface Profilometer, and SNOM (Scanning Near Optical Micrsocopy) capabilities which can achieve an optical resolution of 50-100 nm.

The WiTec System has a 532 nm and 785 nm laser, and is equipped with both transmitted and reflected light sources for a variety of samples.  It is also capable of carrying out analyses in liquid, and has water-immersion objective lenses.
