Finally - A Complete SECM Solution

Bruker’s exclusive PeakForce SECM™ mode is the world’s first complete commercial solution for AFM-based scanning electrochemical microscopy (SECM). With a spatial resolution less than 100 nanometers, PeakForce SECM™ uniquely provides simultaneous capture of topographical, electrochemical, electrical, and mechanical maps with nanoscale lateral resolution. This technology radically redefines what is possible in the nanoscale visualization of electrical and chemical processes in liquid.

Acquire previously unattainable electrochemical information


PeakForce SECM dramatically improves, by orders of magnitude, the resolving power over traditional approaches. This accelerates research into energy storage systems, corrosion science and biosensors, opening the door to novel measurements on individual nanoparticles, nanophases, and nanopores.


„„Perform simultaneous electrochemical, electrical, and mechanical mapping in liquid


PeakForce SECM, powered by Bruker's exclusive PeakForce Tapping technology®, uniquely provides simultaneous multidimensional data. Only PeakForce SECM allows correlation of biological, chemical and physical properties with morphological structures at the nanoscale.

Benefit from reliable, easy-to-use probes specifically designed for SECM


Bruker's premounted PeakForce SECM probes offer easy and safe handling, and the optimized holder delivers an electrically stable architecture for sensitive signal processing. Extremely stable probe performance has been demonstrated for over 10 hours of EC testing and multiple reuse cleaning cycles.


Experience high-resolution AFM and SECM performance


The combination of Bruker’s high-performance Dimension Icon® AFM, proprietary probe positioning, and the innovative SECM nanoelectrode, makes <100 nm EC mapping a reality. This is the highest spatial resolution routinely achieved by a commercial solution.
