Atomic Force Microscope Tosca 400

With the atomic force microscope (AFM) Tosca 400 the sample is ‘scanned’ with a mechanical probe offering a three-dimensional analysis of the surface. Measurements with a high lateral and vertical resolution are obtained.  The result contains topographical and mechanical information of the surface.

Determination of:
Surface topography
Scan range: 100 µm lateral and 15 µm vertical
Mechanical properties

A variety of samples can be measured by this technique.
