X-AFM: AFM that can be installed in Synchrotron X-Ray beamlines.


Correlate sample topology and mechanics observed by AFM with structural characterization provided by Grazing Incidence X-Ray techniques (Surface Diffraction and Small Angle Scattering, GUXD, GISAXS).

Our X-AFM can acquire AFM images up to 1 image/seconds. It can be mounted on the hexapodes of several X-Ray beamlines allowing for a sufficient mechanical stability for AFM operation.
