Nanoscale surface characterisation   

WITec alpha300 A Atomic Force Microscope   


  • Surface characterisation on the nm scale
  • Lateral resolution: down to 1 nm
  • Depth resolution: < 0.3 nm
  • Precise TrueScan™ controlled stages with scan ranges of:
    • 30 x 30 x 20 µm
    • 100 x 100 x 20 µm
    • 200 x 200 x 20 µm
  • Comes with wide range of AFM modes
  • Unique cantilever technology for easy exchange and alignment
  • Operates in air or liquid
  • Non-destructive imaging technique with minimal, if any, sample preparation
  • Add confocal Raman imaging and Nearfield-Microscopy (SNOM)later if required

The alpha300 A Atomic Force Microscope is a reliable, high-quality nano-imaging system integrated with a research-grade optical microscope. It provides superior optical access, easy cantilever alignment, and high-resolution sample surveying.

These AFMs have been designed by WITec to work in combination with other imaging techniques, such as confocal Raman imaging. In fact all imaging techniques can be integrated within the same microscope system... its just a simple matter of rotating the microscope's turret to switch between the different methods.

WITec offer the following possible combinations with AFM: luminescence, fluorescence, polarisation analysis, bright field, dark field, SNOM, and Raman imaging.
