SURFACE nanometrology is specialized in nano metrology since 1996. Our major focus is nanoindentation and scanning probe microscopy (SPM). These techniques allow to determine various physical properties of thin films or bulk material with a lateral resolution in the nanometer scale. We have gained reputation as a distributor for advanced nanometrology systems and now offer a range of accessories for nanoindentation and SPM systems:
- Laser heater for substrates
- Sample heating and cooling stage
- Laser heater for probe tip heating
- Specialized sample holders, e.g. for wetted surfaces
Since 1998 SURFACE operates a fully equipped laboratory equipped with nanoindentation and SPM tools, operated by our staff scientists. The SURFACE nanoLab works as application and service laboratory for nearly all materials – from steel to biological samples. We offer a variety of quantitative characterization methods for metrology, electronic, thermal and mechanical surface properties.
