Bruker Dimension XR

Bruker Dimension XR series is a new series of Scanning Probe Microscopes incorporating significant innovations in AFM technology:

  • Exclusive DataCube nanoelectrical modes
  • AFM-SECM for energy research
  • New AFM-nDMA mode
    • A world first: Polymer nanomechanics that correlates with bulk dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) – more info…


The series includes three models, each optimised to suit a different area of research:

  • Nanomechanics
  • Nanoelectrical
  • Nanoelectrochemical

Quantify material properties at the nanoscale in air, fluids, electrical and chemically reactive environments.

Established Technology

The new microscopes build on Bruker’s established AFM technology. They’re available on either the Icon and Dimension FastScan platforms.

The new Dimension XR systems are the culmination of years of innovations to provide quantitative and easy-to-use nanomechanical, nanoelectrical and nanoelectrochemical characterisation. Our goal is to make these first and only capabilities widely available to the research community, enabling their breakthrough AFM discoveries with new nanoscale information.

Dimension XR Nanomechanics


The Dimension XR Nanomechanics is optimised for characterising the nanomechanical characteristics of materials. It’s fast and quantitative, with these modes:

  • AFM-nDMA – more info
  • PeakForce QNM
  • FASTForce Volume
  • FASTForce Volume CR

Dimension XR Nanoelectrical


Dimension XR Nanoelectrical gives you the most complete selection of electrical AFM techniques on a single system, including:

  • PeakForce TUNA
  • PeakForce KPFM
  • DataCube



With Dimension XR NanoEC you can perform in-situ topography scans in an electrochemical environment. A turn-key system for real-time quantitative analysis of local reactivity at the nanoscale.

  • Bruker’s exclusive nanoelectrode probes
  • EC-AFM
  • PeakForce SECM
