Tip-Enhanced Raman Imaging of Individual Carbon Nanotubes

Carbon nanotubes are expected to be used in a myriad of applications ranging from military protective clothing to hydrogen storage. Due to their nanometer dimensions, however, the structure and surface chemistry of individual carbon nanotubes cannot be easily studied using conventional techniques. Norihiko Hayazawa and colleagues from the Near Field NanoPhotonics Research Team at the RIKEN Center for Advanced Photonics have now developed a high-resolution microscopy technique that can resolve individual carbon nanotubes under ambient conditions. The work has been published in Nature Communications.

True Surface Microscopy for Topographic Confocal Raman Imaging

Confocal Raman imaging opened the door for many applications in Raman spectroscopy and imaging that were previously unavailable for measurement with conventional (non-confocal) Raman methods. However, high confocality always results in high focus sensitivity and this can make measurements difficult with rough and/or inclined samples. Especially when performing scans on a larger scale (scan size larger than 1 mm), this often necessitated careful alignment and extensive sample preparation. more
