Anasys Instruments afm+


Photo of Anasys Instruments afm+ The afm+ from Anasys is a full featured Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) with powerful analytical capabilities that make it much more than just an imaging tool. The afm+ is easy to set up and operate, there is decades of AFM expertise distilled into instrument design which means faster time to results. Powerful localized nanoscale analytical techniques include:
  • Thermal-nanoscale thermal analysis with our patented ThermaLever probes;
  • Mechanical-wideband nanomechanical analysis with our Lorentz Contact Resonance mode;
  • Chemistry-upgradeable to add nanoscale IR Spectroscopy for localized chemical composition.
