Virtual Workshop : Next-Generation Ferroelectric Materials Research
Thursday 30 June 2022 2am NZST, 12 midnight AEST, 10pm AEST (Wed 29th)
Join us for this virtual workshop on Switching Spectroscopy Piezoresponse Force Microscopy (SS-PFM).
Bruker’s new NanoScope 6 controller technology features:
- 5x lower noise and 20x faster speed
- Sampling practically without bit-step limitations
- More capabilities for advanced mechanical and electrical measurements
An example of this improved AFM-controller performance is the Switching Spectroscopy Piezoresponse Force Microscopy (SS-PFM) mode. SS-PFM enables the highly accurate nanoscale characterisation of the properties of ferroelectric materials. The SS-PFM mode expands upon the standard Piezoresponse Force Microscopy (PFM) by greatly improving the sensitivity and accuracy of measurements.
- Learn how to characterise advanced properties of ferroelectric materials with SS-PFM mode.
- Get practical guidance for using SS-PFM to generate a hysteresis loop and characterise properties of ferroelectric materials otherwise inaccessible by PFM modes
Webinar : Bruker Microscopes Fill the Gap Between Fluorescence and Electron Microscopy
Tuesday 14 June 2022, 9am PDT
The imaging and characterisation of biological structures and processes have moved beyond the capabilities, resolution and speed of conventional fluorescence and electron microscopes. Eukaryotic cells consist of organelles and other subcellular structures so small they can only be resolved in detail with super-resolution methods. Such cells have membranes with mechanical properties best investigated at the nanoscale using atomic force microscopy. Neurons form circuits in the brain so far from the surface only two-photon microscopy can reach them. To visualize individual cells, neurons or even molecules in the context of an entire living organism requires light‑sheet microscopy.
Bruker has developed a suite of such advanced microscopes that collect information from cells, complex organ/tumor/tissue models or entire organisms in‑vivo; information not accessible with traditional fluorescence or electron microscopy. In this webinar, experts from Bruker discuss the technology behind atomic force, super‑resolution, two‑photon, and light‑sheet microscopy. We will highlight applications in which these technologies are essential to solving biological mysteries.

Webinar : Nanoscope 6 : Benefits of the Added Capability and Performance
With continuous developments over the past more than three decades, atomic force microscopy (AFM) has become an essential characterization technique, enabling the discoveries across a nearly countless array of disciplines and applications due to its unique capability of conveying rich physical and chemical information at nanometer scale. As the leader in the advances of AFM technology since the introduction of the first commercial system in the 1980s, Bruker is proud to release the brand-new Nanoscope 6 controller. With the full-spectrum hardware upgrades, the Nanoscope 6 controller not only boosts the AFM performance, but also provides many new capabilities and features, which could offer scientists new opportunities to obtain richer and finer information on complex samples. 20 times faster data acquisition and processing can capture fine details hidden within the force-distance curves in the popular PeakForce Tapping modes, and it also significantly improves the signal-to-noise ratio in other modes like Tapping mode and Contact Resonance-based modes. Switching Spectroscopy PFM mode offers a full suite to quantify nanoscale switching dynamics in ferroelectrics, from data collection to automatic data analysis. AFM-nDMA provides an accurate and complete solution to access the viscoelastic properties at nanoscale.Read More
