|Topographic imaging||In Complement with the classic tapping mode used for AFM topographic imaging, the MM8 can be run using the Peakforce tapping which operates in non-resonant and combines the benefits of tapping and contact mode imaging. Peakforce tapping also limits the damage of very soft samples by accurate control of the force set point (from pN to nN). ScanAsyst auto control mode automatically optimizes and adjusts imaging parameters in real-time, for dried samples in air, or for samples immersed in a fluid, making the experience more user-friendly. A phase image is acquired simultaneously with the topography image.|
|Mechanical properties||The AFM supports measurements in PeakForce QNM (Quantitative Nanomechanical Mapping), Quantitative Force-Volume Mapping, and Single Force Curve Imaging. QNM allows for the simultaneous acquisition of multiple sample properties including topology, modulus, adhesion and deformation.|
|Imaging in Fluid||The fluid cells for AFM and liquid-resistant scanner allow the work in aqueous liquids with the option of small volume fluid exchange.|
|Conductivity||The MM8 is capable of mapping the conductivity of a sample with a specialised tip using the PeakForce TUNA™ feature.|
|Lateral Force Microscopy (LFM)||LFM operates in contact mode and measures the vertical deflection of the AFM cantilever. LFM results contain information on both surface friction and topography.|
|Electrochemistry (EC-AFM and EC-STM)||The MM8 is equipped with an electrochemistry fluid cell for EC-AFM and a sample holder for EC-STM|
