Atomic force microscopes NT-MDT with optical microscopes Olympus

Instrument: Atomic force microscopes NT-MDT with optical microscopes Olympus

Location: laboratory 03

General information:

  • imaging of proteins,  nanoparticles and surface topography
  • investigation of nano-scale interactions (e.g. protein - protein)
  • study of local mechanical properties

AFM microscopes are equipped with the options of:

  • head and sample scanning (scanning stage)
  • image acquisition through the optical path of an inverted microscope with simultaneous AFM acquisition
  • measurement in air and in a liquid environment work in all basic modes (i.e. contact, intermittent contact, force spectroscopy)

Sample sizes (no less than 2x2 mm, no more than 40x40 mm - depending on the shape - possibility of special assembly) AFM microscopes are combained with inverted Olympus IX71 and IX70 microscopes, both equipped with digital cameras. AFM laboratory has olso an AFM student microscope (nanoeducator).
