Measuring the thickness, roughness and density of thin films, coatings, multi-layers and superlattices.
How to combine Raman and nanoindentation for correlated mechanical and chemical data, delivering insights into your material’s properties.
How to analyse layers and coatings with Raman spectroscopy, with the example of paint on coated metal.
How to measure the thickness of coatings and layers with micro-XRF, a fast, accurate and non-destructive technique.
New nano-scratch option for the Bruker NanoForce nanomechanical testing system, for nanoscale scratch testing.
Testing Thin Films and Coatings with the Bruker UMT TriboLab Test the material properties of thin films and coatings with the Bruker UMT TriboLab. Perform a wide variety of mechanical tests on thin films and coatings including: Nano- and micro-indentation tests for coating nano/micro-hardness and elastic modulus evaluation Scratch-hardness tests under constant load for scratch resistance and […]
Two upcoming webinars from Bruker about analysing coatings and layers with micro-XRF.
Professor Stuart Lyon of the University of Manchester, a Blue Scientific customer, has published a paper about mapping water uptake in organic coatings using AFM-IR. Water Uptake in Organic Coatings Paints are commonly used to isolate metals from corrosive environments. The breakdown of protection offered by organic coatings over long periods of time is an important process in corrosion science. […]
