Discover the Sarfus Technique by Nanolane

SARFUS is a new optical quantitative imaging technique based on the association of:

  • An upright optical microscope with polarized white light source;
  • Specific supporting plates called Surfs on which the sample to observe is deposited.

Sarfus visualization is based on the perfect control of the reflection properties of polarized light on a Surf, which leads to increase the axial sensitivity of optical microscope by a factor of around 100 without reducing its lateral resolution. Thus this new technique increases the sensitivity of standard optical microscope to a point that it becomes possible to directly visualize nanometric films (down to 0.3 nanometer) and isolated nano-objects in real-time.

Applications include :

  • LIFE SCIENCE
  • THIN FILMS AND SURFACE TREATMENT
  • NANOTUBES AND NANO-OBJECTS
