Equipment Location

The LCN currently has three Bruker MultiMode 8 AFMs which are equipped with an E scanner or J scanner (with heater) and uses the unique PeakForce Tapping™ technology to provide new information, faster results and greatly improved ease of use. ScanAsyst allows direct control of the tip-sample interaction force and optimisation of imaging parameters. PeakForce QNM, analyses each tip-sample interaction to extract nanomechanical properties including modulus, adhesion, deformation, and dissipation.
