High Reliability and Outstanding Performance for Tip enhanced Raman Spectroscopy

Nanoparticles deposition, a propietary technology

NEXT-TIP enhances the performance of AFM tips providing a patented coating of nanoparticles with controlled size and composition and obtaining cutting-edge morphologies from different nano-structures that foster measuring properties.

The nanoparticles deposited at the end of the tips do act as the final probes in microscopy achieving the best lateral resolution and with enhanced lifetime.

Ensured reproducibility fully controlled process

Our technology (physical deposition) ensures coating purity with no chemical agents, like solvents or adhesives and an accurate morphology.

Next-Tip technology offers multiple configuration choice, allowing different kind of nano-structures in the same tip.

Which is very relevant for new developments in tip enhanced Raman spectroscopy (TERS), nano-FTIR, and s-SNOM applications.
