Bruker has released the nanoIR3-s Broadband™, a nanoscale FT-IR spectroscopy system that combines the nanoIR3-s s-SNOM (scattering Scanning Near-field Optical Microscopy) based platform with femtosecond IR laser technology. This combination had applications in advanced polymeric materials, life science applications and in nanoscale optical imaging of 2D materials, including plasmonic fields and nanophotonic structures.

The nanoIR3-s Broadband system covers the entire mid-infrared spectral range (2.5–15 μm/4000–670 cm–1) by coupling with a broadband light source based on a femtosecond OPO/DFG laser. While featuring high laser power and wide spectral range, this laser source can also switch its linewidth for imaging and spectroscopy.
