The AFM+ Platform from Anasys Instruments
At this year's MRS Fall meeting Anasys Instruments displayed their new AFM+ platform that combines an atomic force microscope and thermal analysis capabilities. This platform was designed to be upgraded to their NanoIR spec at a later date.
The thermal analysis technology is unique to Anasys Instruments and allows the user to determine such things as glass transition temperatures and melting points, building up surface maps in conjunction with the AFM capability.
The FTIR capability is also unique to Anasys Instruments and can be added on to the AFM+ platform when the need arises or when funds are available.
