Quantitative Characterisation of Mechanical Properties

Benefit from a full range of methods for characterising mechanical properties. This includes modes for very soft, delicate samples and materials under an external load eg mechanical tension with the stretching stage.

A full set of quantitative data is collected for every pixel, so you can extract quantitative data including elasticity, adhesion, dissipation, chemical forces and conductivity.

Z-adjustment is automated, especially for swelling samples and rough topography.With enhanced data analysis capabilities you can perform powerful calculations including modulus, with a variety of models.

Nanomechanics Modes

  • Advanced QI mode with Contact Point Imaging (CPI)
  • Sample properties under external mechanical tension
  • Contact resonance imaging
  • Higher harmonics with AM, PM and FM
  • MicroRheology
  • Force modulation
  • Friction force microscopy
  • Fast force mapping
  • Single molecule force spectroscopy with ramp & clamp
  • Colloidal probe
  • Nanoindentation
  • Nanomanipulation
  • Contact Resonance module for stiff samples – more details…

Material Property Mapping

Characterise electrical, electromechanical and magnetic properties, even on loosely attached, brittle and soft samples.

The Conductive AFM and Kelvin Probe (KPM) modules feature an enclosed volume so you can control the gas environment, for even more testing possibilities.

In addition to this, there are also enhanced STM, Piezo-Response (PFM), Scanning-Thermal AFM and electrochemical mapping (SECM) options.
