Upgrade Your MultiMode AFM

Upgrade Your MultiMode AFM

You’ll be surprised at the new things your old AFM can do!

Almost any operational Veeco or Bruker MultiMode can be upgraded to the very latest functionality of the new Bruker MultiMode 8-HR. This upgrade enables a whole range of new capabilities not possible on earlier generation MultiMode AFMs!

Upgrade for New Features!

Upgrading your MultiMode enables many new software features and hardware accessories that were not possible in earlier generations, including:

PeakForce Tapping® – How AFM Should Be

  • Highest resolution AFM imaging
  • Superior, direct control of tip-surface interaction forces
  • Improved ease of use, especially for fluid imaging (no tuning required)
  • PeakForce QNM® quantitative mechanical property mapping
  • >1000 publications to date: the fastest growing new AFM mode

  • Self-optimising AFM mode
  • Users of all levels can achieve “expert level” results

Fast Scanning

  • 20x faster survey scans
  • 6x faster scans at no loss of resolution in air with ScanAsyst-HR

Advanced Electrical Modes

  • Highest resolution quantitative surface potential imaging with PeakForce KPFM™
  • High resolution, non-destructive, quantitative conductivity mapping with PeakForce TUNA™

Latest Generation NanoScope Software

  • NanoScope version 9.2
  • Improved algorithms for imaging
  • Fast force volume mapping
  • Up to 5k * 5k pixel imaging
  • Fully supported 64 bit Windows 7 operating system


This upgrade is available for MultiMode V systems (based on the NanoScope V controller) and MultiMode systems based on older legacy NanoScope controllers (e.g. NS3,NS3a, NS3D, NSIV).
