Atomic force microscope TITANIUM NT-MDT (Zelenograd, Russia)

In the microscope, two types of scanning heads are realized: a universal AFM head for working with one cantilever and Revolution HeadTM for working with cartridge-type probes. The microscope allows to carry out measurements using all the basic techniques of atomic force microscopy, and also in the HybridTM mode - a nonresonant oscillation technique with direct control of the probe-sample interaction force at each point of the image, which allows obtaining complex information about surface properties.

Scanning range: 100х100х10 microns.

In the undervoltage mode: 3х3х0.2 μm.

There is a sample holder with the possibility of heating up to 150 o C.
