“Thanks to PeakForce QNM, we were able to rapidly obtain pertinent information on the mechanical properties of very soft and sticky polymer materials, such as bioadhesives or adaptive hydrogels, that other classical SPM techniques were not able to provide.”
Philipe Leclère et al, University of Mons (UMONS) Belgium
Bruker atomic force microscopes are widely used in material and polymer science. AFM is particularly suitable for investigating the nanoscale properties of nanocomposite materials. Bruker’s unique PeakForce QNM mode delivers fast, high-resolution mapping of nanomechanical properties including modulus over a wide range (kPa to GPa). Most Bruker AFMs are available with high temperature heating and cooling options, which can be used to investigate polymer phase transitions, as well as many other applications. A wide range of techniques is available, including thermal analysis, electrical property mapping (current and capacitance), and nanoindentation.
A wide range of accessories are available for electrochemical AFM and STM measurements at the nanoscale. These are useful for applications including corrosion, electroplating and battery research. Gloveboxes are available for advanced lithium ion battery research, with sub-ppm control of water and oxygen while utilising the full range of AFM capabilities.
Biological AFM applications include molecular biology, cell biology, mechanobiology, biomaterials and biophysics. All Bruker AFMs can be operated in liquids and many are available with perfusion and heating options. ScanAsyst mode is ideal for biological samples, eliminating the complicated step of “tuning” the cantilever resonance. It also enables stable imaging, immune to set-point drift, with direct control of the tip-sample imaging force and automatically optimised imaging parameters.
Unique PeakForce QNM mode enables fast, high-resolution mapping of nanomechanical properties, including modulus, over a wide range (kPa to GPa). Dedicated application modules enable various electrical measurements, including current mapping (conductive AFM), low current mapping (“Tunneling AFM”, TUNA), and wide range current measurements (Scanning Spreading Resistance, SSRM). The revolutionary PeakForce TUNA mode (exclusive to Bruker) combines the superior force control and nanomechanical property mapping of PeakForce QNM with the high current sensitivity of TUNA. New higher resolution, higher sensitivity surface potential mapping is now also possible.
