Using Nanoelectrical Solutions to Expand the Capability of AFM

Innovative nanoelectrical AFM modes provide a significant new capability for materials characterisation

Learn About Innovative Nanoelectrical AFM Components & Applications

In this webinar,  our speaker discusses how AFM-based nanoelectrical measurement capability has advanced. AFM is now more accessible to a wider range of materials and the user can obtain a greater amount of information about their sample than has previously been possible.

Webinar Summary

This webinar showcases how correlating nanomechanical and nanoelectrical measurements can lead to a greater determination of properties. The speaker demonstrates how Bruker’s new solution, the NanoElectrical Lab, can correlate both mechanical and electrical data at each single pixel to provide an increased understanding of sample properties while also lengthening the usable lifespan of AFM tips.

During the session, the speakers explore the following topics:

Bruker's NanoElectrical Lab

  • Introduction to the NEW DataCube modes 
  • Correlation of nanomechanical and nanoelectrical data
  • Possibilities for tailored nanoelectrical measurements

Nanoelectrical Applications of AFM Instruments

  • Graphene and other 2D materials
  • Semiconductors
  • Nanowires
  • Ferro and piezo-electrics
  • Smart materials
  • Conductive polymers
  • Battery materials
  • Fuel Cells
