Our platform posses two complementary apparatus: Autoprobe CP-Research (Thermomicroscope) and Agilent 5500 AFM.
In both cases :
-One scanner 90X90µm
-One scanner 5x5 µm for high resolution
-One coupled optical microscope
Autoprobe CP-Research :
-Fixed AFM tip , samples on X,Y,Z piezoelectric-displacement.
—> very well adapted for high resolution imaging.
Agilent 5500 AFM :
-fixed sample, AFM tip linked to the X,Y,Z piezoelectric displacement.
-Controled temperature (25-250°C)
-Special cell for measurements in liquid.
In addition to the classical topographic imaging, special options permit to probe mechanical, chemical, magnetic and electrical properties.
