Live Webinar on Tribo iQ Software Applications for Hysitron Nanomechanical Test Instruments

Date: Thursday 16 November 2023

Time: 5am NZDT, 3am AEDT, Midnight AWST



If you are not a night owl, register, and you will receive copy of the recorded webinar after the event :)

Bruker’s Tribo iQ suite of technique-specific software applications deliver comprehensive and streamlined data analyses, from indentation and scratch testing to particle compression and tensile testing. In this webinar, our experts demonstrate the use of Tribo iQ for six different types of analysis. 


Bruker experts will discuss numerous Tribo iQ technique-specific applications, from indentation analysis to XPM mapping and statistics. 


Dr Ude Hangen, Applications Manager, Advanced viewing and analysis of indenation data
Jasmine Johnson, Applications Scientist, XPM mapping and statistics with small data sets
Dr Jungkyu Lee, Applications and Systems Engineer, Advanced viewing and analysis of scratch data
Dr Jaroslav Lukes, Sales Applictions Scientist, Techniques for analysing soft matter
Radhika Laxminarayana, NRL Development Engineer, Time-temperature superposition of nylon 66
Dr Sanjit Bhowmick, Product Line Manager, In situ stress-strain analysis of silicon micropillars


For further information on any of the Hysitron family of nanomechanical instruments please contact Christian Gow.

Webinar : Advanced Nanomechanical Analysis using Atomic Force Microscopy

Date: Wednesday 27 September 2023

Time: 3am NZST  |  1am AEST  |  11pm AWST (Thurs 26th)


Please join us for this live webinar on advanced nanoscale analysis using atomic force microscopy (AFM). AFM is a multiparametric imaging technique and ideal for the nanomechanical characterisation of advanced materials and the quantification of properties, such as friction, elastic modulus, stiffness, adhesion, and viscoelasticity.


During this webinar, our experts will answer the following questions:

  • Which AFM modes are used for nanomechanical analysis ?
  • How can you leverage additional tools like machine learning and bulk property analysis ?
  • How can you correlate nanomechanical measurements with AFM-based nanoelectrical and nanomechanical characterisation data ?
  • What details should every user know about experiment setup and data analysis ?


Webinar Speakers:

Dr. Peter De Wolf, Director Technology & Application Development, Bruker

Dr. Bede Pittenger, Senior AFM Development Scientist, Bruker

OTESPA AFM Probes are back in Stock !

Two of Bruker's most popular visible-tip probes are back in stock : OLTESPA-R3 and OTESPA-R4!


These probes allow you to reliably target any point of interest. Just align the free end of the cantilever with the sample feature of interest when in the navigation GUI of your AFM, and hit Engage. Since the tip is located directly beneath the cantilever apex, it will land in the perfect position every time!


Both probes feature tetrahedral sharpened tips with 7 nm tip radii for crisp topographic images. OLTESPA-R3 has a 70 kHz frequency and 2 N/m spring constant, while OTESPA-R4 has a 300 kHz nominal frequency and 26 N/m spring constant, making them a perfect pairing for a wide range of polymeric, metallic, semiconductor, ceramic, and similar samples.

Bruker Webinar : In Situ Cryogenic Testing

Date: Thursday 7 Setpmber 2023

Time: 3am NZST, 1am AEST, 11pm (Wed 6 Sept)

Deformation processes are often thermally activated, including a reduction in plasticity and tendency towards fracture as temperatures drop. In this webinar, three case studies will be presented that show how PI Cryo can be used to explore deformation caused by in situ mechanical loading under cryogenic conditions:

  • Observing detwinning behavior that has been linked to anti-thermal behavior via atomistic simulations
  • Identifying the ductile-to-brittle temperature transition in a variety of carbon steels, with some unanticipated outcomes
  • Performing pillar compression in an austenitic stainless steel, and comparing to ex situ cryogenic steel

Join this webinar to learn about how PI Cryo can facilitate understanding of deformation processes at cryogenic temperatures. Guest speaker Prof. Gregory Thompson and Bruker Applications Scientist Eric Hintsala, Ph.D. will discuss thermally-activated deformation processes and the value of performing in-situ mechanical loading at cryogenic temperatures with PI Cryo. Three case studies will be presented to showcase this capability and its insight into the mechanical behavior of materials at such low temperatures.  

Register, and you will receive copy of the recorded webinar after the event.
