Nanotribometer from CSM Instruments - Features and Applications

Nicholas Randall from CSM Instruments introduces us to their latest nanotribometer which is a compact desktop model featuring improved applied load and tangential force sensors. It is suited to study tribology at the nanoscale.

The NanoDrop Lite from Thermo Scientific

Thermo Scientific have launched the NanoDrop Lite, the smaller version of the NanoDrop 2000 system. The system uses a UV-Vis spectrophotomer is used for the quantification of nucleic acids, DNA/RNA samples, proteins etc.

'The Complete Tribology Lab' - The New UMT from Bruker

Bruker's UMT Universal Mechanical Tester. The UMT is the "complete tribology lab" and provides macro, micro and nanoscale tests under real-world conditions. Talking to Bruker's Steve Shaffer and University of Sheffield's Mark Rainforth, they discuss the ease of use and the typical applications of the UMT.

The EM TIC 3X Milling System from Leica Microsystems

The EM TIC 3X Milling System surpasses conventional slope cutting instruments. It can mill at high rates, cut broad and deep into the sample, and create smooth surfaces resulting in high-quality cross-sections of almost any material, quickly and easily.

The Bruker CETR-Apex Nanomechanical Testing System

The CETR-Apex system from Bruker is a nanomechanical testing system that features easily interchangeable heads allowing it to be able to used as a nano or micro indentation system. It also incorporates an optical microscope and atomic force microscope (AFM).

Materials Characterization with the NanoIR from Analsys Instruments

Curt Marcott from Light Light Solutions tells us how the NanoIR from Anasys Instruments has opened up new possibilities in materials characterization. Combining AFM and IR spectroscopy provides spatial resolution an order of magnitude better than conventional IR, which enables researchers to do such things as examine nanoparticles in a matrix, or analyze for compositions differences across in interface.

The Multiview AFM/Raman System from Nanonics Imaging

David Lewis from Nanonics Imaging Ltd shows us their Multiview Series of AFM/Raman systems that can be supplied with Renishaw or Horiba Raman systems. Nanonics can also supply the Multiview systems as upgrades to existing Raman systems of total systems.
