Combining different analytical methods into one instrument is of great importance for the simultaneous acquisition of complementary information. Here at Quantum Design Microscopy we combine two of the most powerful microscopy methods – scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM) – in order to gain completely new insights into the micro- and nano-world using correlative microscopy.
Especially the capability to integrate the AFM system directly inside the high-vacuum environment of the SEM enables a completely new way to perform your research and your experiments. It allows to directly combine the complimentary strengths of both techniques in-situ without the need to transfer your sample or to break vacuum.
The possibility to work simultaneously with SEM and AFM offers the great advantage that – in in addition to simply measure the 3D topography – you can also work with the advanced AFM modes, in order to measure, e.g., mechanical, magnetic, or conductive properties. This enables completely new possibilities for true correlative microscopy and allows you to extract unique information from your sample.
