Bruker Dimension Edge atomic force microscope (AFM)

Overview:

The Dimension Edge AFM is among the best performance AFM, which enables acquiring accurate data within short time. It works well for different samples, even liquid films, making it powerful to study biological molecules. It offers various AFM modes, including standard contact mode, lateral force microscopy, tapping mode, etc.

Applications:

Topographic imaging of nanostructures. Measurement of mechanical properties on the nanometer scale.
