This webinar will discuss AFM-based infrared spectroscopy (AFM-IR) from Anasys, a technique that enables chemical identification and composition mapping with sub-100nm spatial resolution. AFM-IR has been used in a variety of applications from polymers and materials sciences to life sciences. The webinar will discuss applications including chemical composition characterization of polymeric blends, multilayer films, organic photovoltaics and life sciences samples such as cells, sub-cellular components, bacteria, and viruses.
Two other complementary technologies that Anasys pioneered, nanoscale thermal analysis and nanoscale dynamic mechanical spectroscopy, will also be discussed.
Participants Will Learn:
• Technique and applications of nanoscale IR spectroscopy, thermal and mechanical analysis
• Reverse engineering of complex polymers
• Chemical identification and compositional mapping of complex materials
• Simultaneous/co-located measurements of nanoscale chemical, mechanical and thermal properties on the same sample
