Nanoparticle Analysis, Characterization and Imaging

Using Darkfield Scatter With Hyperspectral Microscopy

Works in: Dark-field scatter Fluorescence Luminescence Photo-Luminescence Percent transmission Absorption Percent reflectance Radiometry
Histogram showing spectral abundance of gold nanoparticles Gold nanoparticles in live cells
Gold Nanoparticles imaged within live cells
Spectral histogram quantifies abundance ratios in defined regions of interest
Image, Analyze and Characterize Nanoparticles Metallic (Ag, Au, Co, TiO2, Ce2O3...) nanoparticles Non-metallic nanoparticles (Carbon nanotubes...) 5 to >200 nm particles, depending on material and illumination light source Note that Nanoparticles can be detected and characterized, but cannot be individually resolved in scattered light. Sample materials Live cells, tissue or prepared samples Powders, cosmetics... Industrial materials Imaging Maps the location and character of nanoparticles in a field of view Non destructive: Benign illumination keeps live cells alive! Work in high or low magnification: 10 to 100X Works in Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) to reveal size, shape and proximity
