Industrial and Manufacturing

Nanoscience Instruments aims to provide scalable, high-throughput and often automated imaging and mechanical characterization solitions for industry.

  • Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) - The Phenom SEM comes equiped with a fully integrated, motorized and programmable XY stage allowing for automated, high-throughput image acquisition without user bias. The BSE detector can be used to investigate regions of differing composition and quantify coverage by area.
  • Nanoindentation - The iNano and iMicro nanoindenters designed for fast, repeatable and accurate hardness & elastic modulus measurements with unrivaled dynamic measurement performance.
  • 3D Optical Profilometry - The Zeta-20 quickly produces quantitative 3D reconstructions of surfaces allowing for fast and percise roughness and surface finish measurements.
