Microscopy and Spectroscopy of Optically Active Nanostructures

A wide-ranging variety of microscopy and spectroscopy capabilities for the characterization of the emergent optical phenomena associated with novel nanostructures.

CINT houses a variety of spectroscopic capabilities for characterization of both ensemble and individual optically active nanoparticles. Ensemble-level characterization includes the measurement optical properties across UV, VIS, NIR, and Mid-IR spectral ranges including: optical absorption spectroscopy, photoluminescence, and Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy.  We also house a number of commercial and custom-built microscopes to characterize spectroscopic responses of individual nanostructures. These microscopy systems are equipped with a variety of tunable and fixed wavelength lasers which enable both the excitation and the spectroscopic characterization of individual nanostructures in the UV,VIS, and NIR spectral ranges.
