JPK Instruments has introduced QI, a quantitative imaging mode for the recently launched NanoWizard 3 AFM system.
The software has been developed to make AFM imaging easier than ever before. With QI, a force curve-based imaging mode, the user has the full control over the tip-sample force at every pixel of the image. There is no need for setpoint or gain adjustment while scanning.

The small size of micro- and nano-structures makes tensile testing challenging. In this study we meet this challenge by combined use of a Focussed Ion Beam (FIB) in Dual Beam configuration, an AFM-cantilever, and a micromanipulator which provide the required accuracy and versatility to measure the mechanical properties of nanowires by tensile testing. AFM cantilevers with a big range of force constants principally enable us to measure the tensile behavior of a great variety of materials.

Surface metrology is quickly emerging as a critical analytical technique to determine the topology of various materials. It can be used to identify corrosion, surface characterization, or to control the quality of different surfaces. Conventional methods such as profilometry, have involved the use of a stylus being dragged along the sample surface. However, this technique can be problematic; it cannot be used on certain materials, such as adhesives, and the dragging process itself may result in inaccurate data being obtained.
