EZ TEMPerature: AFM Temperature control

The Nano-Observer AFM is compatible with the temperature control accessory EZ temperature and peltier developed by CSI to deliver precise temperature control and imaging during temperature changes. It is compatible with all AFM modes.

Manufacturer

CSI

CSInstruments is a French scientific equipment manufacturer specialised in the conception of Atomic Force Microscope and options designed for existing AFM (Nano-Observer AFM, Resiscope™, High Voltage Amplifier, Magnetic modules). The product range proposed by CSInstruments is designed and manufactured to help the scientific community to achieve nanometer performances that meet the research needs and requirements for actual and future nanoscience applications.

CSInstruments was founded by a team of experts working in AFM field for more than 20 years, starting as pioneer with some historical manufacturers. CSInstruments activity is also based on a qualified and dynamic team, experienced in the fields of mechanics, electronics and data processing. This expertise ensures innovation and performance in the production of AFM and achieves an excellent price/performance ratio!

Temperature Control

A heating or cooling sample stage is available to study temperature-dependent surface phenomena like phase transitions on polymers, materials or biological samples. Temperature range is from -40°C to 300°C. The design of the Nano-Observer architecture minimizes the temperature gradient between the heating/cooling stage and the scanner, so that thermal drift is minimized. This allows to perform stable imaging during temperature rise.

Interests

Precise temperature & imaging during temperature changes

The design of the Nano-Observer AFM is made in anticipation of future developments and may receive additional modules for more advanced studies on the same sample. The temperature control is developped to deliver precise temperatureand imaging during temperature changes.

It is compatible with fully AFM modes. A heating sample stage is available to study phase changes on polymers, materials or biological samples.
