A Great 2011 Promises an Even
Greater 2012

On behalf of Bruker’s Nano Surfaces Division, I’d like to extend you our best wishes for a Happy New Year. Looking back on 2011, I’m struck again by what a good year it was for our division, which experienced great growth, and for the AFM industry in general. The pace of innovation and introduction of products and solutions that will advance science and enable new opportunities was tremendous. At Bruker, we launched Dimension FastScan™ a groundbreaking advancement that delivered the world’s fastest AFM while providing the highest resolution and quality. It has already made its mark, receiving response as a new standard in AFM technology.

Similarly, our renowned Multimode® 8, which boasts the largest worldwide AFM installed base, evolved to a new level of performance utilizing such innovations as our ScanAsyst® with HRand PeakForce QNM® imaging modes to provide researchers unprecedented ease-of-use and true quantitative AFM results. In addition, we helped continue to harness the convergence of different technologies that have been playing an increasingly major role in our industry. To answer needs in chemical ID, we partnered with leading spectrometer manufacturers to deliver Innova-IRIS a fully integrated AFM-RAMAN solution for advanced TERS-based research. Finally, we introduced several exciting probe advances and launched a new easy search and order E-commerce site for probes and AFM accessories (visit website).

As We Begin 2012
We are again excited at what the next year promises. Bruker is fully committed to our tradition of innovation and the development of new products that help advance research in materials and life sciences for both academia and industry. We have impressive plans to upgrade our customer-care and manufacturing facilities around the world, to provide the best possible environment for success for both our employees and customers. In particular, we will be opening 4 new international customer care centers to provide regional expertise and to ensure personal contact, increased local training, and faster response and repair time.

Thank you for your continued support, and I am looking very much forward to the great advances we will make together this year.
