Macro, micro and nano scale measurements can be performed on the same platform.



Fully automated operation, start measuring within minutes, not hours!



High spatial resolution, automated mapping stages, full microscope visualization options.



Top-down and oblique Raman detection for optimum resolution and throughput in both

co-localized and Tip-Enhanced measurements (Raman and Photoluminescence).



Ultimate spectral resolution performance, multiple gratings with automated switching, wide spectral range analysis for Raman and PL.



Nanoscale spectroscopic resolution (down to 10 nm) through Tip Enhanced

Optical Spectroscopies (Raman and PhotoLuminescence).



Numerous SPM modes including AFM, conductive and electrical modes (cAFM,

KPFM), STM, liquid cell and electrochemical environment, together with chemical mapping

through TERS/TEPL. Full control of the 2 instruments through one workstation and a powerful software control, SPM and spectrometer can be operated simultaneously or independently



High resonance frequency AFM scanners, operation far away from noises! High

performance is obtained without active vibration isolation.
