Characterization

Standard metrology and imaging tools for micro- and nanofabrication and material characterization.

AFM

self-assembled spider silk peptide fibrils on gold (Nilebäck et al)

Atomic force microscopy (AFM), one of the cornerstones of nanoscience and technology, is a highly versatile technique for imaging and force measurement in air or liquid, and in controlled environments.

SEM

nanofocusing zone plates for hard x-ray imaging (Vogt et al)

 Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) is the imaging workhorse of the Nanolab, for rapid characterization of micro- and nanostructures

Stylus and Optical Profilometry

calibration sample with 80nm step

Stylus profilometry provides reliable step height data for determining film thickness down to nm level. Optical profilometry provides rapid 3D images of topography at mm lateral scales.

Several high performance optical microscopes are available. Refer to the general lab info  page for details.
