AFM – Indentation – Contact angle and surface tension
Post author: Lauren Hyde. Last update: 14/10/2015 at 3:29 pm by Lauren Hyde.
This platform is a combination of atomic force microscopy (AFM), colloidal characterisation equipment and nano-indentation capabilities to provide surface and material characterisation of a broad range of materials to support research activities in engineering, science and medicine.
This platform has the capacity to provide information on surface topography, elasticity, magnetic and electrical properties, colloidal forces, wetting properties, and micro- and nano- mechanical material property characterisation.
This is a multi-user platform that supports a diverse range of research groups. Through this platform we offer access to equipment and provide support on a collaborative or fee for service basis depending on the scale, focus and area of the work.
Please contact us for an initial scoping of work.
The Nanomaterials Characterisation facility has particular expertise in:
- Atomic Force Microscopy
- Surface characterisation of materials including: topography, elasticity, magnetic and electrical properties, colloidal forces
- Nano- and micro- mechanical property characterisation
- Integrated AFM and fluorescence microscopy
- Colloidal characterisation
- In-house technical support and training provided
- User operated after completion of training
To access the instrumentation, either as a collaboration or fee for service, please contact the platform support officer James Griffith. We welcome new users and collaborators, and can provide guidance for experimental design and analysis. Existing users can make instrument bookings here.
