Bruker’s Nano Surfaces Division has launched the MultiMode 8-HR Atomic Force Microscope (AFM), featuring extensive new capabilities for nanomechanics and higher speed imaging.
The latest nanomechanics features of MultiMode 8-HR enable researchers to access the broadest range of ramp frequencies for viscoelastic studies and nanomechanical assessment of a wide range of materials, from soft biological specimens to hard metallic samples.
“The MultiMode platform has long been the gold standard for performance and application versatility, and we’ve significantly enhanced its capabilities with the MultiMode 8-HR,” said Stephen Minne, Ph.D., Vice President and General Manager of Bruker’s AFM Business.
“Unique improvements include higher speeds, higher resolution imaging, new capabilities in nanomechanics with enhanced PeakForce QNM, and new FastForce Volume modes. In keeping with our ongoing commitment to our thousands of loyal MultiMode customers, we have designed these new developments in resolution, flexibility, and reliability to be available also as upgrades to their current MultiMode systems.”
The high-resolution and data processing capabilities of the MultiMode 8-HR are the result of its combination of rigid, mechanical design and advanced control electronics.
Utilising Bruker’s NanoScope V Controller and new Version 8.2 software, the system features unprecedented bandwidth and extremely low-noise data acquisition to enable such proprietary technology advances as ScanAsyst, Peak Force QNM and FastForce Volume.
