Kleindiek Nanotechnik present talks on in situ force measurements and new methods of micromanipulation at MicroScience 2010
Agar Scientific announce that their German partners in microscopy, Kleindiek Nanotechnik, will be giving two presentations at MicroScience 2010 on June 29th.
Kleindiek Nanotechnik will present talks on June 29th at MicroScience to describe their instrumentation for micro- and nano-positioning & measurements. With miniaturisation in semiconductor technology, optics, micro-mechanics, medicine, gene- and bio-technology, highly precise positioning techniques are becoming increasingly important. Kleindiek is focused on providing complete and innovative solutions for each market segment whether these are in research or industry.
Dr Stephan Kleindiek will discuss in situ force measurement over nine orders of magnitude. Piezo resistive cantilevers are used in combination with precise manipulators with resolutions of 0.25nm, the measurement of forces as low as 1nN is possible.
Dr Andrew Smith will talk about versatile solutions for TEM sample preparation, manipulation at the micro and nano scales and electrical probing in situ. The techniques deliver high sample throughput by employing dedicated tools in the shape of small, load-lockable platforms holding all necessary components for the application.
Both Drs. Kleindiek and Smith will also be available on the Agar Scientific stand, J6, to talk with microscopists about their applications and answer questions on how Kleindiek Nanotechnik may deliver solutions through standard or custom products.
