Detailed Description

The MultiMode 8 has Bruker’s PeakForce Tapping technology in addition to the standard AFM imaging modes. This technology gives high resolution AFM imaging of a wide range of materials from soft biological samples to hard materials in both air and liquid.

Included in this technology is PeakForce QNM which allows for the quantitative nanoscale mapping of nanomechanical properties including modulus, adhesion and deformation, whilst simultaneously imaging sample topography.

Additionally, the MultiMode 8 has a PeakForce-HR module which facilitates PeakForce Tapping at scan speeds 6x faster than traditional imaging modes without any loss in image quality.

For novice users, the MultiMode 8 has ScanAsyst for automatic image optimisation which eliminates the need to manually adjust complicated imaging parameters.


Due to its versatility, the MultiMode 8 can be used to study and characterise a wide range of materials, including:

  • Biological material
  • Polymers
  • 2D materials
  • Metals
  • Composites
  • Ceramics
