Please visit us in booth #416. Come meet our staff and discuss our systems and your applications!
 
Plan to attend these three NANONICS IMAGING presentations by Prof. Aaron Lewis, Nanonics Imaging CEO and Founder:
 
"The Nano Probe Station for Your 2D Characterization Needs:  The First Low Temperature MultiProbe SPM-NSOM System Integrated with Raman"
Tuesday, Oct 20, 2015, 10:40  - 11:00 am, Room Hall 1
 
"Understanding the TERS Effect with On-line Tunneling and Force Feedback Using Multiprobe AFM/NSOM with Raman Integration"
Tuesday, Oct. 20, 2015, 11:40am - noon, Room 212D 
 
"A Correlation of Raman and Single and Multiple Layer Graphene Conductivity As Detected With A Cryogenic Multiprobe AFM With On-line Raman, NSOM and Other SPM Modalities"
Wednesday, Oct.  21, 11:40 - noon, Room 211C
Optical Anapoles Are Experimentally Demonstrated For the First Time
 
Physicists Miroshnickenko and colleagues  have found a new way to confine electromagnetic energy without it leaking using nonradiating anapole modes [Nature Communications, 2015].  
Nonradiating electromagnetic sources continue to be of interest as a model for stable atoms to understand why orbiting electrons do not radiate, and have potential applications for combatting energy losses and explaining dark matter.   
The radiationless anapole mode is achieved by dividing the current between two different components; a conventional electrical dipole and a toroidal dipole.  Using a Nanonics CryoView MP  and transmission NSOM mode with Nanonics NSOM probes, these scientists tested this theory using near-field characterization of single silicon nanodisks. They observed the disc's cancelling of visible light, thus rendering the feature effectively invisible at that wavelength.
 
The Cryoview MP:  
The Ultimate 2D Material Characterization Platform:
The Nanonics CryoView MP is a powerful MultiProbe scanning probe microscopy system that operates at low temperature down to 10K. Its modular design incorporates up to three independent SPM probes allowing for a variety of transport electrical measurements including MFM, EFM, KPM and thermal measurements. 
The open optical access permits diverse optical integrations including near-field, Raman, TERS and fluorescence measurements.
The CryoView MP is the ideal SPM platform for studying mechanical, optical, and electrical nanoscale properties of 2D materials at low temperature.

Come discuss the Cryoview MP with us at AVS!
