The Bruker Dimension ICON SPM operates in a scanning probe configuration and is therefore able to accommodate samples up to 210mm in diameter with a thickness up to 15mm. Depending on the sample, the scan size can be up to 100µm2 (with a maximum feature height of ~10µm). The ICON is contained within a very effective vibration isolation unit, which allows for Z resolution of ~1nm. The ICON is equipped with proprietary ScanAsyst® image optimization technology which makes the system very easy to use and allows for consistent results. In addition, the ICON can be operated in many advanced modes including Contact Mode, TappingMode and PeakForce QNM.
