Calibration Service for AFM Cantilevers

The NANOSENSORS screencast on the calibration service for AFM cantilevers has just reached the 1000 views mark.

NANOSENSORS™ screencast on the Calibration Service for AFM Cantilevers,

Accurately determined cantilever properties are very important for quantitative force measurements. Force constant and resonance frequency are determined either by thermal tune, the Sader- or the dimensional method, respectively. Usually, the thermal tune method delivers the most precise values, but suffers from the fact that the AFM tip has to get in contact with the surface to calibrate the photo-detector sensitivity. This procedure may damage or break the tip!

NANOSENSORS™ offers a thermal tune calibration procedure performed by Laser vibrometry. This method is contact free and therefore does no damage the tip, but preserves the original AFM tip quality. To ensure the highest level of accuracy NANOSENSORS™ cantilever calibration method is calibrated with a standard, certified by the national German metrology institute.

This service is part of our Special Development List.

Graphene-Reinforced Biodegradable Resin Composites for Stereolithographic 3D Printing of Bone Structure Scaffolds

UV-crosslinkable graphene-reinforced biodegradable nanocomposites using SLA 3D printing technology can potentially remove important cost barriers for personalized biological tissue engineering as compared to the traditional mold-based multistep methods.*

In the research article “Graphene-Reinforced Biodegradable Resin Composites for Stereolithographic 3D Printing of Bone Structure Scaffolds” by Zuying Feng et al., the authors present how they developed a UV-curable, 3D-printable and biodegradable resin.*

NANOSENSORS PointProbe®Plus PPP-FMR AFM probes were used to study the morphology of the graphene flakes.*
