Main Activity in Nanotechnology
With modern techniques such as
- Scanning Probe Microscopy,
- Optical Profiling,
- Scanning Electron Microscopy, and
we are able to analyze surface structures down to the micro- and nanometer scale - a range which cannot be reached by conventional techniques such as optical microscopy. The service lab nanoAnalytics has the ability to characterize miscellaneous surface systems such as
- organic thin films,
- polymers, or
- biological surfaces.
Besides the high resolution imaging of surface structures and roughness we can also provide information about local electric, magnetic, mechanical or chemical properties. The detailed knowledge of surface tribology, i.e. elasticity, adhesion, and friction, on the micro- and nanometer scale is often important for the optimization of macroscopic material and surface properties.
