Based on a new revolutionary technology, neaSNOM is a unique microscope available on the market capable of imaging and spectroscopy in the visible, infrared and even terahertz spectral region at only 10 nm spatial resolution. This is the reason why the neaSNOM is the ideal tool for cutting-edge nanoanalytic applications such as chemical nano-composition (nano-FTIR-mode), nano-plasmonic fields, nanoscale stress/strain fields and free charge carrier distributions.
