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.
It uses similar load ranges as an AFM, but has the advantage over AFMs that it is not restricted in the choice of the size and shape of the static partner for tribology testing. As such it bridges the gap between AFM tribology and macro tribometers.
The Nanotribometer can be used to study such materials as self assembled monolayers, contact lenses, soft tissues, very thin films, diamond like carbon coatings and hard disk drives.
