The combination of specialized imaging techniques with nanomechanical and nanotribological testing enables the characterization and understanding of materials in ways previously unimaginable. Taking advantage of multiple fully-integrated materials characterization technologies, Bruker’s hybrid imaging capabilities provide enhanced confidence in the measured results and a deeper insight into material properties and deformation behavior. Hybrid imaging leverages the core strengths of the imaging technique and seamlessly integrates it with nanomechanical testing. This in-situ combination greatly increases data reliability and new understanding of properties and material deformation behavior at the nanoscale.
Bruker is the pioneer and world leader in hybrid imaging-nanomechanical testing techniques. From our in-situ SPM imaging capabilities for nanometer-precision test placement accuracy, an integrated fluorescence microscope for fluorochrome guided test positioning, and Raman spectroscopy for combined chemical composition and structure characterization, to high-resolution imaging inside your SEM and TEM, Bruker’s hybrid imaging techniques will increase reliability and accelerate your understanding of material behavior at the nanoscale.
