Nano thermal analysis applications

Nano thermal analysis (nanoTA), pioneered by Anasys Instruments, is available as a module that integrates with your AFM. Hundreds of labs worldwide use nanoTA to go beyond the limits of traditional thermal analysis, achieving inisights into:
• Tg and Tm transition measurements on thin films and nanoscale domains within polymer blends
• Spatial variation of polymer cross-linking; Cure rates/defects in coatings
• Transition temperature microscopy to quantify and map thermal transitions (TTM)
• Scanning thermal microscopy (SThM) for device failure analysis and other applications
