NTEGRA Spectra won Frost & Sullivan best practices award 2010

Moscow | Posted on November 26th, 2010

NT-MDT Co. is proud to announce that its NTEGRA Spectra (AFM/ CONFOCAL RAMAN & FLUORESCENCE/ SNOM/ TERS) has won the prestigious Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Award 2010. This Award is presented to companies in recognition of making an outstanding contribution to their respective industries or achieving a competitive or customer-based leading position in the market.

Frost & Sullivan's Global Research sees the TERS technology as a tool to overcome the difficulties related to understanding of phenomena at the nano level. Being able to study specific physical and chemical bonds might result in accelerated advances and yield a significant market advantage. Only NTEGRA Spectra provides fully technical integrated with Raman spectrometer solution in terms of software, hardware, and concept for interdisciplinary science at the molecular level. As a result of such union, researcher can obtain optimum efficiency and more time for investigations which allow to focus on data collection and analysis.

"The enhancement, which in practical NT-MDT application is of two to three orders, takes place at the contact point between a metal tip and a sample, in the presence of a focused laser beam. The application of the tip is critical as it allows the technique to overcome the diffraction limit - the enhanced signal generation becomes the matter of a tip size (which is of a few tens of nanometers in diameter) rather than of a laser spot size (which could be of a few hundreds of nanometers in diameter)," Frost & Sullivan's research analyst Igor Derylo say about NTEGRA Spectra.

The NTEGRA Spectra works in upright and inverted setups which enables investigation of both opaque and transparent samples. The TERS technology is of high importance for fundamental-level studies, such as proteomics or DNA research in the bio-medical field. The technology would also be beneficial for nano-materials development, for instance studies of semiconducting particles as well as carbon nanotube and graphene investigation, to be applied in novel functional and structural materials. Nano-level molecule interaction studies could also contribute to development of novel sensors and detectors for different biological or chemical content to be used for instance in defense sector. The TERS also enables advancements in industrial fields, such as research in corrosion, or catalytic processes.

In 2006 NTEGRA Spectra system was awarded by another well-known prestigious prize - R&D 100 Award.
