We report successful chemically specific high pixel density, high speed (less than 10 minutes per map) TERS imaging of graphene oxide, carbon nanotubes of different chirality, fullerenes and self-assembled layers of organic molecules in both the single-component and complex samples. The spatial resolution routinely obtained in such chemically specific TERS maps is in the 15 - 20 nm range, with the best resolution achieved being 7 nm. The ease of use of the TERS imaging system and high speed TERS imaging capability enabled by advanced hardware and software move TERS closer to become a real life analytical method for chemically specific imaging at the nano scale.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
