Asylum Research Introduces Nanorack Sample Stretching Stage for MFP-3D AFMs

Asylum Research, the technology leader in Scanning Probe and Atomic Force Microscopy (SPM/AFM) has announced the new NanoRack™ Sample Stretching Stage Accessory for its MFP-3D™ AFMs. This high-strain, high-travel manual stretching stage provides two axis stress control of tensile loaded samples under different loads.

Automatic load cell calibration provides integrated force measurements with MFP-3D images or other measurements, and returns both stress and strain data. Maximum sample load is 80N. Applications for the NanoRack stage include direct measurements to determine interfacial adhesive strength of nano- and micro-scale domains within polymer blends, especially blends generated in-situ in polymerization reactors. Additional applications include measurements of forces required to induce cracking in a variety of biological and inorganic materials. The stage is compatible with a wide variety of AFM imaging techniques including Phase and Dual AC™ for enhanced contrast of material properties, as well as the MFP-3D’s Ztherm™ option for localized thermal analysis.

The NanoRack Sample Stretching Stage provides two axis stress control integrated with MFP-3D AFM images and other measurements, returning both stress and strain data.

Dr. Jason Cleveland, Asylum Research CEO, commented, “Currently there are no direct measurement methods for observing nanoscale features and effects under stress control. Our new NanoRack Sample Stretching Stage has already proven extremely useful in industry and academia for measurements of adhesive strength in polymers and stress-induced deformations and cracking in a variety of materials.”

Added Product Development Engineer, Paul Costales, “The NanoRack exemplifies the way in which Asylum Research develops new products through customer interaction and collaboration. We are pleased to see our users already publishing with data only the NanoRack can allow.”
