NT-MDT launches Titanium, the first AFM with automated, multiple tip exchange
(March 27, 2014 Zelenograd, Russia) NT-MDT, a premier global provider of innovative AFM and SPM, proudly announces Titanium, the first AFM with a self-aligning, multiple probe cartridge for fast, automated tip exchange.
Titanium’s unique Revolution Cartridge simplifies one of the most challenging steps in AFM workflow: tip exchange and alignment. The cartridge holds an amazing 38 tips. As each new probe moves into position, Titanium automatically centers and aligns the probe and laser, dramatically cutting downtime for tip exchange as well as opening AFM to less experienced users and more routine applications.
Real-time detection of cantilever deflection allows Titanium to collect topographic, mechanical and electrical properties in a single measurement session, with high quality and spatial resolution. Its robust, stable engineering delivers exceptionally low drift (0.2nm/min) and a low noise level (25fm/√Hz ).
Titanium also offers the new HybriD Mode™ (HD-AFM™ Mode), a high resolution modality especially well-suited to nanomechanical testing. Other options include a standard AFM head for traditional probes, an AFM head for liquid studies, and an STM head for scanning tunneling and spectroscopy. A nanoindentor measuring head and a heating stage are also available. These solutions provide a robust growth path and make Titanium the ideal instrument for multi-user facilities.
NT-MDT service stands behind Titanium, offering another industry first: a triple warranty that provides free cartridges (under regular usage) for three years.
