Submicron infrared spectroscopy
in a few seconds
Fast, easy-to-use contactless optical technology
mIRage overcomes the limit of IR diffraction with an innovative technique, photothermal infrared optical spectroscopy (O-PTIR).
A tunable pulsed medium infrared laser induces photothermal effects on the surface of a sample, measured using a visible probe laser focused on the sample. Measurements are collected quickly and easily, without the need for contact-based techniques such as ATR spectroscopy.
FTIR transmission quality spectrum in reflection mode
mIRage provides infrared spectroscopy and chemical imaging, regardless of the infrared wavelength. Using O-PTIR, highly sensitive IR measurements are enabled, allowing absorption of transmission quality without contact with the surface. This eliminates the need for thin samples and improves turnaround times.
