Near-Field Scanning Optical Microscope (NSOM)

The goal of this projects is to extend our current Aurora-2 NSOM system so that we can acquire both topographic and full spectroscopic data (emission).  The first stage of this project will be to obtain a HR4000 fiber optic spectrometer and couple it to system.  Once that is done, the InstruView program will be extended to integrate the data from the NSOM, as well as the HR4000.  The project is in the planning phase for now, but I will post more information once we get the system into place.
