As atomic force microscopy enters its fourth decade as a primary technique for enabling advanced materials research, its high-resolution data has been used to drive discovery across a nearly countless array of disciplines and applications. Bruker has been leading the expansion of AFM capabilities since the introduction of the first commercial system in the 1980s. As the technology has matured, AFM has given scientists the opportunity to characterize features on ever more complex samples, and not only in topography. Our committment to helping you do more, and do it more easily, has kept Bruker AFMs at the very cutting-edge of instrumentation innovation. For example, Bruker AFMs, powered exclusively by PeakForce Tapping® technology, are helping researchers advance new nanomechanical, nanoelectrical, and nanoelectrochemical research, on the order of three peer-reviewed published articles per day.
With an unrivalled suite of imaging modes available, Bruker has an AFM technique for every investigation.
Built on the backbone of core imaging modes—Contact Mode and Tapping Mode—Bruker offers AFM modes that allow users to probe their samples’ electrical, magnetic, or materials properties. Bruker’s innovative new PeakForce Tapping technology represents a new core imaging paradigm that has been incorporated into several modes, providing topographic, electrical, and mechanical properties data in parallel.
Our webinars cover best practices, introduce new products, provide quick solutions to tricky questions, and offer ideas for new applications, modes, or techniques.
Bruker partners with our customers to solve real-world application issues. We develop next-generation technologies and help customers select the right system and accessories. This partnership continues through training and extended service, long after the tools are sold.
Our highly trained team of support engineers, application scientists and subject-matter experts are wholly dedicated to maximizing your productivity with system service and upgrades, as well as application support and training.
