  • We are delighted to announce the installation of our brand new NanoMicroSpec transmission setup (http://www.ntandc.de/spectroscopy.html). This setup is suited for single-particle dark-field/bright-field and transmission/reflection spectroscopy and imaging at nano and micro scales. It has a fiber-coupled high-intensity, ultra-stable, broadband laser-driven light source as well as broadband halogen lamps, and allows for fluorescence spectroscopy.
