Scanning Probe Microscope (SPM)

Brand : NT-MDT
Model : NTEGRA Prima
Scanning Type : By sampel & By Probe
Scan Range : 100 μm – 1 A

Scanning Probe Microscope (NTEGRA Prima) is capable in performing more than 40 measuring methods, which allows to analyse physical properties of the surface with high precision and resolution. It is possible to carry out experiments in air and liquid. The new generation electronics provide operations in high-frequency (up to 5MHz) modes. This feature appears to be principal for the work with high-frequency AFM modes using high-frequency cantilevers.

There are several scanning types implemented in NTEGRA Prima: scanning by the sample, scanning by the probe and dual-scanning. On account of that, the system is ideal for investigating small samples with ultra-high resolution (atomic-molecular level) as well as for big samples and scanning range up to 100x100x10 μm.

NTEGRA Prima can analyse different characteristic of physical properties of the surface such as in topo mode (topography, roughness, pore size, grain size, thickness), Electrical mode (Spreading resistance, surface potential, electrical, capacitance), Piezorespone, Force curve measurement.
