A WITec microscope can be as basic as the alpha 300 M for single Raman spectrum measurements or as complex as the alpha 300 RAS, equipped with combined Raman, AFM, NSOM, fluorescence and luminescence imaging techniques.
We developed a sophisticated neural network architecture, called Nested Self-Organising Map (NSOM), to achieve an optimal balance between recall and precision.
The challenge of breaking this limit has led to the development of NSOM. The optical probes originally used in NSOM were created by pulling an optical fiber to a final diameter of 25 to 100 nm, coating it with aluminum, and etching to provide a fiat, circular endpoint and aperture.
The new device grows out of a method known as near-field scanning optical microscopy (NSOM), which is widely used for imaging.
SPM encompasses three main techniques: atomic force microscopy (AFM) (see IBO 12/31/94), scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and near-field scanning optical microscopy (NSOM) (see IBO 5/15/05).
Aurora-2 near-field scanning optical microscope (NSOM) provides sub-diffraction-limit spatial resolution of NSOM in open-architecture platform designed to allow easy access to signals and ready to interface to external detectors.
In the Market Profile of near-field scanning optical microscopy (NSOM) that appeared in the May 15, 2005 issue of IBO, WITec GmbH was inadvertently omitted from the list of leading NSOM suppliers.
Near-field scanning optical microscopy (NSOM) is an interesting technique that surmounts one of the limitations of ordinary light microscopy: the diffraction limit.
"You can now make use of AFM or NSOM to create image contrast based on topography or conductivity to give you the size and shape of your nanomaterials.
Future work will focus on adapting and interpreting signal-processing and signal-deconvolution algorithms developed for AFM and NSOM to this nanowire scanning microscope.
This data sheet discusses the new, fully integrated near-field scanning optical microscope (NSOM).
Near-field scanning optical microscopy (NSOM) uses an optical fiber drawn to a fine tip.
