Nanotechnology is the control of matter on the atomic or molecular scale.  It has many different applications including research and development of nanomaterials and biomaterials.  Nanomaterials have unique properties some of which that are determined by instrinsic nanoscale features.  Biomaterials are naturally occuring materials or those derived from biological processes.  Again, they have unique properties arising from features that occur on the micro or nano-scale.   

Due to the microscopic scales of the materials to be analyzed, microspectrophotometers are the perfect tool.  Able to analyze micro-scale samples by absorbance, reflectance or even fluorescence, these tools are easy-to-use and very accurate.

Bionanotechnology applies the principles of nanotechnology to biotechnology: where the technological products and organisms are derived from biology and agricultural sciences.  Products resulting from bionanotechnology research are used in three major areas: agriculture, biologically derived products such as biofuels and environmental applications.  As such, bionanotechnology ranges from microarrays where thousands or millions of tests can be conducted on a single device simultaneously, bioengineering and bioremediation. 

Due to the microscopic volumes of the materials to be analyzed, microspectrophotometers are the perfect tool.  Able to analyze micro-scale volumes by absorption, reflectance or even fluorescence, these tools are easy-to-use and very accurate.  Their flexibility and accuracy make them very importance for analyzing everything from genetically engineered bacteria to sophisticated microarrays.

Near Infrared Microscope

Near infrared microscope

The near infrared microscope is a microscope that images in the near infrared region. 

Near infrared microscopes are designed to "see" beyond what a standard optical microscope can image.  With special near infrared optics, light sources and cameras, near infrared microscopes can image microscopic samples in the visible and the shortwave infrared region.  This means that near infrared microscopes have features that make them superior to normal visible range microscopes:

  • Some materials are transparent in the near infrared while being opaque in the visible region
  • Enhanced contrast of certain materials in the near infrared region. 

For example, silicon is opaque under normal light but is transparent in the near infrared region.  The interiors of silicon based devices can therefore be inspected without having to disassemble them.    

CRAIC Technologies offers a number of solutions for the near infrared microscope.  These custom designed microscopes capable of imaging from the visible region all the way into the near infrared.  They are capable of microscopy in transmission, reflectance and even fluorescence.
