The microscopy suite in the Laser and Spectroscopy Facility encompasses a wide variety of instruments for imaging and mapping of material properties. Available modalities include confocal 3D optical profilometry, confocal Raman and fluorescence microscopy, scattering scanning near-field FTIR spectroscopy, C-DIC, TIC, polarization, phase, brightfield, and darkfield. Available geometries are inverted and upright using reflected or transmitted illumination.
