NT-MDT SI Participate at INTERMAG 2017

NT-MDT Spectrum Instruments recently exhibited at INTERMAG 2017 conference which took place in Dublin, Ireland, April 14th - 28th 2017. INTERMAG 2017 took place at The Convention Centre Dublin (The CCD), Irelands first purpose-built convention centre located in Spencer Dock in the heart of Dublin city.

INTERMAG is a premier conference on all aspects of applied magnetism and provides a range of oral and poster presentations, invited talks and symposia, a tutorial session, and exhibits reviewing the latest developments in magnetism.

Throughout the conference Dr Sergey Lemeshko Sales Manager responsible for the Irish Market performed live demonstrations on the Solver Nano delivering results in real time.

The Solver Nano is the best choice for Scientists who require a single instrument that is robust, user-friendly and a professional tool. Solver Nano has been specifically designed by our experts for easy use to allow teachers to educate the next generation of researchers in nanoscience by means of thorough hands-on training in all important nanotechnology areas. Please visit our website for more information http://www.ntmdt-si.com/

NT-MDT Spectrum Instruments would like to sincerely thank all those that visited us at Booth # 21 we look forward to meeting you at future NT-MDT Spectrum Instruments Workshops & Events.

NT-MDT Spectrum Instruments traditionally supports the International Scanning Probe Microscopy conference

NT-MDT Spectrum Instruments traditionally supports the International Scanning Probe Microscopy conference, which is the 19th this year and takes place in Kyoto, Japan.

ISPM conferences provide an ideal occasion to present novel discoveries in theory, instrumentation and application of scanning probe microscopes. During the conference NT-MDT SI presents a new approach for compositional study of topography and electro-mechanical properties of soft and fragile samples. The new AFM mode named HybriD Piezoresponse Force Microscopy (HD PFM) allows simultaneous nondestructive investigation of surface morphology, mapping of quantitative nanomechanical properties and domain morphology of piezoelectrics and ferroelectrics.

We are glad to discuss the new HD PFM and other products at the booth till May 19th or via info@ntmdt-si.com any time.

NT-MDT SI spring activities in Europe and USA

Last month NT-MDT Spectrum Instruments participated several specialized conferences and exhibitions around Europe and USA.

Some of them are:

  • Lednice SPM Workshop in Česká republika;
  • Graphene Conference in Barcelona;
  • Sondes Locales SPM forum in Mountpellier France;
  • 4th Annual Conference on Optical NanoSpectroscopy in Lisbon, Portugal;
  • SI DPG in Dresden, Deutschland;
  • APS in New Orleans, LA

NT-MDT SI demonstrated the modern solutions for Scanning Probe Microscopy and ran life demonstrations and sample measurements on the TITANIUM, SOLVER Nano and the NTEGRA systems. The reports and presentations of various applications in AFM / QNM / SNOM / AFM-Raman / TERS and IR s-SNOM modes were also introduced while the workshops.

We would like to appreciate all the visitors coming to our booths worldwide for your attention and the interest to our products and innovations. We are happy to provide scientific researches with the most complete and up to date instrumentation and support.

See you on the upcoming events!

NT-MDT Spectrum Instruments Exhibits at DPG 2017 Spring Meeting

NT-MDT Spectrum Instruments proudly exhibited at the recent DPG 2017 Spring Meeting in Germany, Dresden, March 19th- 24th 2017. The conference took place this year at TU Dresden. DPG Spring meetings take place at varying locations and is one of the largest Physics Congresses in Europe attracting almost 10,000 Physicists from all over the world to participate.

From cutting edge scientific research to routine surface investigations, NT-MDT Spectrum Instruments has a unique and unrivalled portfolio of Scanning Probe Microscopes. Our application-focused instruments provide you with a full range of capabilities in AFM-Raman, high-resolution, multi-frequency measurements, and AFM based nanomechanics.

Dr Sergey Lemeshko Sales Manager responsible for the German Market presented TITANIUM, our revolutionary AFM, on which he generated high quality scans and delivered results in real time.

NT-MDT Spectrum Instruments would like to sincerely thank all those that visited us at Booth # 80 Zelt A and met with our experts to discuss your AFM needs and were happy to find solutions.

MRS 2016

NT-MDT Spectrum Instruments is excited to take part at MRS Fall Meeting & Exhibit 2016 November 27 – December 2 in Boston, Massachusets.

Location: Hynes Convention Center
Level 2,
900 Boylston Street
Boston, Massachusetts 02115
Booth Number: 923

The increasingly cross-disciplinary worldwide activity in materials research manifests itself every year in the MRS Fall Meetings. Featuring over 50 symposia and attended by as many as 6,000 researchers from every corner of the globe, the annual Fall Meeting in Boston’s Hynes Convention Center and Sheraton Boston Hotel is the preeminent annual event for those in the field of materials research.

Please, visit us at Booth 923. Our engineers will be glad share with you our news and latest developements, to demostrate work of our AFM equipment and to provide our visitors free samples of Golden (NSG10, CSG01) and Etalon (HA_NC, HA_C) series cantilevers.

Single crystal diamond AFM probes with high aspect ratio

 

We’re glad to present the new product in our assortment: AFM cantilevers with single crystal diamond (SCD) tips. This type of probes is represented by a very narrow diamond (CVD-grown) needle glued to a standard tipless Si cantilever.

AFM probes prepared by such technology show several features, especially relevant to AFM scans:

  • SCD tip’s cone angle is less than 10 degrees. Thus a diamond needle will get into deep trenches and between high particles, providing detailed topography images.
  • Single crystal diamond tip’s end is very hard. As the result wear of such cantilevers is several times slower than for standard silicon ones. Low deformation of a tip will be the great utility for elasticity investigations and simple nanoindentation or force lithography experiments.
  • SCD tip has got low surface energy and it works well for sticky biological samples.

SCD AFM cantilevers are constantly used by our best application scientists: Sergey Magonov and Marko Surtchev. Thus we’re absolutely sure in quality of these probes.

To the right you can see a scan of so-called “Black silicon” relief. Such surface can be constructed by a special etching experiment and is used in solar cells.

Main challenges in visualization of “black silicon” pyramids are their heights that reach 6-7 um. Standard cantilever can’t get between such high and densely grown structures. But as the one may see from the scan, SCD probes worked well. Sharp pyramid’s shape and well-defined flat areas between them approve high quality of the scan.

Now SCD cantilevers are presented in our assortment by the models NSG30/SCD and FMG01/SCD with the same lever’s parameters as for corresponding ones of Golden series. But by the request SCD needles can be glued to any types of tipless cantilevers of Golden and Etalon series.

Also we provide an additional discount 15% for any models of SCD probes till the end of October 2016.

AFM cantilevers with conductive coating TiN
 
We’re glad to announce that AFM probes with titanium nitride (TiN) coating appeared in our assortment again.
High hardness of this material and its melting temperature around 3500 C provides its utility in wide range of applications.
 
Our practice of AFM measurements shows that thin films of TiN spread over AFM cantilever’s tip’s end are stable in high currents and any standard force loads that arise in the contact AFM technique. Our first cantilevers with conductive TiN coating were prepared and investigated in 1998 as the result of the common project of NT-MDT and State Research Institute for Problems in Physics (V. Shevyakov, S. Lemeshko, V. Roschin. Conductive SPM probes of base Ti or W refractory compounds. Nanotechnology, 9 (1998) 352-355).
 
Since July TiN coated AFM cantilevers are presented in our stock by models: NSG01/TiN and FMG01/TiN. If you need AFM probes with other resonance and stiffness parameters, please, don’t hesitate to write to Lisov@ntmdt.ru (Evgeniy Lisov). In future we’re going to extend TiN assortment over all models of Golden series.
 
Refreshing our production range we also announce the new special: with any offer made in August the one may claim to try conductive TiN cantilevers. And we will send a test box of three NSG01/TiN or FMG01/TiN probes for free. We will also appreciate if you share with us your opinion after trying these probes later!
