Continuing the PeakForce Tapping Revolution in AFM

Bruker Introduces High Resolution Nanoelectrical and Electrochemical AFM Technology

Boston, MA | Posted on November 30th, 2010

Bruker Corporation (BRKR 15.51, -0.11, -0.70%) announced today at the Materials Research Society (MRS) Fall 2010 Meeting the release of a new generation of Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) modes and measurement modules that transform Bruker's AFM systems into turnkey solutions for nanoscale characterization in renewable energy research. The most significant of these new AFM accessories, the PeakForce TUNA(TM) module, enables very high resolution nanoelectrical characterization on fragile samples, including organic photovoltaics, lithium ion battery composites, and carbon nanotube-based device structures. Complementing this capability, Bruker's new offering for electrochemistry research provides wide solvent compatibility, ppm-level environmental control, and easy in-situ liquid scanning on an AFM.

"We are excited to offer ground-breaking new capabilities to scientists in growing areas of nanoelectrical characterization in materials research," said Dr. Mark R. Munch, President of the Bruker Nano Surfaces Business. "This new product release represents a significant advance in our continued drive to expand AFM technologies to energy markets by addressing customer needs for quantitative nanoscale characterization. We are gratified that these modules are among our first new product releases as part of Bruker. Building on our leadership position, they are a fitting continuation of the rapid stream of innovative new products that we have delivered over the past three years."

Mr. David Rossi, Vice President and General Manager of Bruker's AFM Unit, added: "Our new suite of nanoelectrical and electrochemical products are part of our development team's long heritage of AFM innovations in nanoscale research and they build on the foundation of PeakForce Tapping(TM) and ScanAsyst(TM) modes. We see unmet need for non-destructive and artifact-free nanoelectrical and electrochemical characterization in the growing arena of future energy generation and storage materials, and we are partnering with leading researchers and companies in those fields to deliver innovative products to enable their success."

About Bruker's Nanoelectrical and Electrochemical Modules

The new modules expand the Bruker solution suite for nanoscale electrical and electrochemical characterization on samples requiring sensitive mechanical and environmental control. The PeakForce TUNA module utilizes a new current amplifier in conjunction with PeakForce Tapping to allow, for the first time, conductivity mapping on fragile samples such as organic photovoltaics, lithium ion cathodes, and carbon nanotube assemblies without the deleterious effects caused by sample damage and tip contamination. In addition, it enables direct correlation of nanoelectrical and nanomechanical maps with Bruker's exclusive PeakForce QNM(TM) imaging mode. The PeakForce TUNA module is complemented by a new environmental control solution affording ppm-level control of oxygen and water for the most sensitive samples. A new electrochemical AFM cell has been designed to be compatible for a wide range of solvents, including those commonly used for Lithium battery research.
