Datasheet

Product Description

Carmina is a mid infrared (mid-IR) light source from APE. It combines scattering scanning nearfield optical microscopy (s-SNOM) and atomic force microscope infrared sectroscopy (AFM-IR) giving a remarkable mid-IR light source.

Carmina is a broadly tunable infrared light source from APE for integration with scattering scanning nearfield optical microscopy (s-SNOM) and atomic force microscope infrared (AFM-IR) microscopes.

The source sets new standards in resolution, sensitivity and tuning range due to its optical parametric oscillator/difference frequency generation (OPO/DFG) architecture. The unique combination of 300cm-1 broadband as well as 20cm-1 narrowband emission covers the two complementary nanoscale infrared techniques s-SNOM and AFM-IR.

The outstanding high output power between 5mW and 300mW in combination with an extremely low noise level is addressing a wider range of applications in the nearfield imaging and spectroscopy field.

A pulsed mode (burst mode with 50% duty cycle) is included for AFM-IR applications.

  • Imaging and spectroscopy of organic and inorganic samples with a remarkable infrared light source
  • Two complementary nanoscale mid infrared techniques: s-SNOM and AFM-IR
  • High performance narrowband (~20cm-1) and broadband (useable 300cm-1) emission
  • Highest signal-to-noise performance due to OPO/DFG architecture
  • User friendly turnkey operation including automated wavelength tuning
  • Wavelength tuning broadband: from 2.15µm - 15µm (670cm-1 - 4650cm-1)
  • Wavelength tuning narrowband: from 5.0µm - 15µm (670cm-1 - 2000cm-1)
  • Outstanding output power levels between 5mW and 300mW
  • Fast continuous sweep mode in under 30 seconds for scanning from 1000 - 1800cm-1 in the narrowband mode
