Bruker Expands PeakForce Tapping Accessibility
Product News Apr 30, 2013
Bruker’s Nano Surfaces division has announced the expansion of its proprietary PeakForce Tapping™ technology to the Dimension Edge™ AFM platform.
PeakForce Tapping is the enabling technology behind Bruker’s popular suite of proprietary imaging modes, including ScanAsyst®, which brings unprecedented ease of use to AFM operation.
ScanAsyst guarantees highest imaging resolution in air and fluid without the need for optimizing operating parameters.
In applications ranging from standard roughness measurements to the most advanced electrochemical investigations, its inclusion on the Dimension Edge platform, makes highest resolution imaging accessible to an even wider user base.
“Our patented ScanAsyst mode automates image optimization greatly simplifying the user experience and extending the utility of AFM,” said David V. Rossi, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Bruker's AFM Business.
Rossi continued, “The underlying PeakForce Tapping technology extends high-resolution AFM imaging to more samples by applying a precisely controlled, extremely low force response curve at every pixel, protecting our user’s probes and samples. ScanAsyst makes this capability accessible to more users by automatically monitoring image quality and making the correct parameter adjustments to deliver the best possible results to our customers.”
