AFM-IR is now a robust technique to make an infrared analysis at a nanometer scale. This technique is based on the coupling between a tunable infrared laser and an AFM (Atomic Force Microscope). This coupling allows
us to perform ultra-local infrared spectroscopy and chemical mapping at the nanometer scale. The principle is based on the detection of the sample thermal expansion, irradiated at the wavelength of its absorption bands. The applications of this infrared nanoscope are numerous from biology to polymer science. We will present different applications: like tracking drugs or macromolecules inside cells or tissue.
