Message from Our Vice President and General Manager:

Since the invention of the AFM, improving its productivity and scientific capability by increasing its fundamental speed of operation has always been one of the field’s greatest goals - and one of its greatest challenges. The researchers at Bruker have long been committed to this challenge, and I am pleased to announce that, in May, we released the Dimension FastScan™ - the world's fastest AFM.

The Dimension FastScan™ development team worked with many AFM leaders to both understand high-speed enabled research objectives as well as the corresponding enabling high-speed technology. In our labs, we refined these considerations in the pursuit of bringing together the best-of-all into one instrument. The result was the creation of an AFM that ideally marries high-resolution performance, with tip-scan sample flexibility AND high bandwidth imaging. I believe the FastScan will change the way the SPM community thinks about and uses the AFM, but this is something you must judge for yourself - please accept my invitation to join us at one of the many FastScan workshops we are running around the world.

On our website and in our application notes, you can find numerous examples of how researchers are discovering that, with the Dimension FastScan, they can run experiments never before thought possible. These applications range from enabling the observation of polymer and biological dynamics to conducting statistical screening experiments in hours rather than weeks. Even better, the Dimension FastScan is powered by ScanAsyst™, which enables single-button high-speed imaging for virtually any sample. This ease-of-use enhancement alone increases AFM productivity to levels that rival SEM throughput, particularly for multi-user research environments and industry, enabling new AFM best practices as well as new research.

While our scientific staff has been busy bringing you the Dimension FastScan, we have continued to advance all our product lines. Since our last newsletter we have released the following new products and features:

  • The new Dimension Electrochemistry accessory provides the most complete solution for electrochemical scanning probe microscopy
  • Dimension Icon AFM has been extended with advanced Raman spectroscopy and imaging capability
  • We have release our new line of Broadband™ Probes that have fr, k, and Q specifically designed for high-speed, low-force imaging on Dimension FastScan
  • The latest VITA™ module upgrade extends nanoscale thermal analysis from single manual measurements to fully automated thermal property mapping
  • An updated version of our industry-leading NanoScope Software offering some great new features and upgrades

We are excited about each of these advancements and the new possibilities they empower. If you have a technical question, please visit The Nanoscale World online AFM technical community. We thank you for your continued support and hope to see you later this month at Seeing at the Nanoscale, starting July 19.
