Confotec® NR500

Confocal microscope Confotec® NR500 is a high-precision, fully automated 3D scanning laser Raman microscope with a spectrometer.

Confotec® NR500 is designed for rapid non-destructive analysis of the physical and chemical properties of micro-objects and nanostructures, and for obtaining information on the substance by means of optical spectroscopy.

Confocal microscope Confotec® NR500 can be combined with a scanning probe microscope to obtain nanometer spatial resolution in Raman and photoluminescent mapping of the TERS and TEPL sample (Probe Enhanced Raman and Photoluminescence Spectroscopy).

  • Simultaneous/multifunctional analysis: Raman measurements, luminescent measurements, laser reflection and transmission measurements, 3D high-contrast images in reflected light, 3D Raman confocal measurements, information about spectral and polarization properties of a sample.
  • High spatial resolution: horizontal resolution up to 200 nm and axial – up to 500 nm. Wide spectral range.
  • Specially designed monochromator-spectrograph with unique parameters. Use of inverted and upright microscopes is possible. Telescope with variable magnification for adapting laser beams to entrance pupils of microobjectives from 3 to 12 mm.
  • Fully automated control of the system. High temporal and temperature stability is provided by modular rigid and rod design. No fiber optics that decrease some optical parameters (transmission, wave front, polarization). Ring illumination for combination with AFM.
