Thsi webinar, cohosted by Professor Ken Nakajima (Tokyo Institute of Technology) and Bede Pittenger, Ph.D., (Bruker) will discuss new results obtained with atomic force microscope based dynamic mechanical analysis (AFM-nDMA) on polymeric materials. AFM-nDMA makes possible dynamic modulus determination (storage modulus, loos modulus, and loss tangent) with a wide-frequency range that is directly comparable to bulk DMA, but with the nanometer level resolution of AFM.Read More
Bruker Launches Large-Format Bio-AFM System
The new NanoWizard® 4 XP High Resolution, Large-Format Bio-AFM integrates Bruker's exclusive PeakForce Tapping, which enables both superior force control and unparalleld AFM ease of use, and industry-leading QI mode for high-resolution nanomechanics on soft samples.
Building on JPK's pioneering role in combining AFM with advanced optical techniques, the NanoWizard 4 XP system provides highest level correlative microscopy and seamless integration with phase, DIC, confocal or spinning disc microscopies, single-molecule methods (FRET, FCS, TIRF, FLIM, FRAP), super-resolution tecnhniques (STED, PALM/STORM, SIM), Raman and multiphoton microscopy.
In addition to PeakForce Tapping and QI mode, the NanoWizard 4 XP comes with JPK’s next-generation Vortis 2 high-speed, high-performance control electronics. Vortis 2 delivers the lowest noise levels and highest signal processing speeds, and it is designed to meet the needs of all operator experience levels. A revolutionary new workflow-based software GUI includes guidance, auto-setup, and workspace organization to deliver results quickly and to enhance productivity. As an option, NestedScanner™ technology enables an AFM scanning speed of 150 lines per second, unprecedented for a large-scanner system, while maintaining access to any location within all three axes. Researchers have full access to follow dynamics wherever the sample takes them, offering a true synergy with simultaneous optical microscopy. Equipped with the widest range of accessories, the NanoWizard 4 XP is the most versatile Bio-AFM system on the market, providing exceptional flexibility for novel applications and experiments.Read More
Andor Launches Balor Camera for Astronomy
Andor Technology (Andor), an Oxford Instruments company and world leader in scientific imaging and spectroscopy solutions, today announced the launch of the new ultra-sensitive Balor, a very large area sCMOS camera for ground-based astronomy applications. Combining a 16.9 Megapixel, 70mm sensor with fast ultra-low noise readout, Balor is the perfect detector solution for large sky surveys that measure photometric and astrometric variability across timescales ranging from milliseconds to tens of seconds. As the largest commercially available sCMOS camera, Balor is designed for ‘dynamic astronomy’ applications such as Orbital Debris tracking, Solar Astronomy, Solar System Object detection, Exoplanet Discovery, Atmospheric Studies and Fast Time Resolution Astrophysics.Read More
Hysitron TS77 Select Nano Test System
Bruker is pleased to announce the expansion of their Hysitron Nanomechanical Test Instruments product line. The Hysitron TS 77 Select automated benchtop nanomechanical and nanotribological test system provides the highest level of performance, functionality, and accessibility of any benchtop nanoindenter. Built around Bruker's renowned TriboScope capacitive transducer technology, this new test system delivers reliable mechanical and tribological characterisation over nanometer-to-micrometre length scales. The TS Select supports the most prominent testing modes, and is an affordable entry into quantitative nanoindentation, dynamic nanoindentation, nanoscratch, nanowear and high-resolution mechanical property mapping.Read More
