Thin Film Measurement Webinar Series
As thin film technology advances, there is ever increasing demand in decreasing the film thicknesses of products for modern industries, especially in the semiconductor, hard coating and display industries. This evolution poses different challenges in manufacturing technology; including understanding the intrinsic film mechanical properties and evaluating the relationship between thin film mechanical properties and product quality. Nanoindentation and Scratch testing have thus become the most widely used techniques to meet these challenges.
Bruker understands your needs and challenges in Thin Film and ultra-thin film measurements. We are pleased to present this 4-part webinar series, where we will share about the nanomechanical technology relevant in thin films for research and industrial applications along with case studies.

In-Situ Nanomechanical Testing Mini Symposium
Tuesday and Wednesday 1 & 2 June 2021, 8:30pm AEST
Probing the mechanical behaviour of materials at the nanoscale is necessary for the development of new nanostructured materials and continued miniaturization of engineering devices, electronic components, thin films, and surface coatings. This symposium will cover state of the art topics related to cutting edge developments in nanoscale mechanical characterization of materials such as metals, alloys, ceramics and organic crystals. The talks will demonstrate in-situ nano-mechanical testing techniques to extract site specific properties across temperatures and environments in a high throughput manner as well as introduce data science approaches for the same. The lecture themes are relevant to both audiences from academia and industry.Read More
Advanced In-Situ Nanomechanical Test Instrument
Bruker Nanosurfaces has announced the release of the Hysitron PI 89 SEM PicoIndenter, which provides nanomechanical testing capabilities inside a scanning electron miroscopy (SEM) at higher loads and in more extreme environments than previously possible. This will benefit researchers' understanding of the deformation mechanisms of high-strength materials.
The PI 89 SEM Picoindenter is the first in-situ instrument with two rotation and tllt stage configuations. This enables flexible sample positioning toward the electron column for top-dwn imaging, tilting toward the FIB column for milling, spindle rotation for crystallographic alignment, and compatibiltiy with a wide range of detectors to enable structure-property correlation of complex materials.
Benchtop 3D Optical Profilometers
Bruker has released the next-generation benchtop ContourX 3D Optical Profilometers. The white light interferometry (WLI) platform features Bruker's new USI mode - a universal scanning mode that automatically determines the optimal measurement parameters for best metrology restuls. Additionally, a 5MP camera and new stage design significantly boosts large-area stitching, allowing for the collection of 1000 high-resolution stitched fields. This combination of features and capabilities enables greater convenience and productivity in a host of demanding research and industrial aplications ranging from studying novel material structures and characterising manufactured components for medical, automotive and aerospace.
High Resolution AFM Imaging
The NanoWizard 4 XP Nanoscience atomic force microscope delivers atomic resolution and a large scan range of 100µm in one system. It enables fast scanning with rates of up to 150lines/sec and seamless integration with advanced optical techniques. A wide range of modes and accessories for environmental control, mapping of nanomechanical, electrical, magnetic or thermal properties, makes it the most flexible system available on the market today.
