(L) AFM-IR spectra on electrospun PVDF fibers under two different IR polarizations (R) IR absorption image at 1404 cm-1 of crossed PVDF fibers under polarized illumination. (polarization direction shown by arrow)


Nanoscale thermal analysis of a PS-PMMA blend deposited on glass. A scan (left) shows indents in the surface caused by temperature ramps (right). The data from the PS (red) and PMMA (green) clearly differentiate the two materials. Also shown is data from a thin film of PS on PMMA (blue) showing the initial penetration of the PS followed by the melting of the PMMA.


AFM image (left) and a series of Lorentz Contact Resonance mechanical spectra (right) on a blend of polystyrene (PS) and low density polyethylene (LDPE). LCR spectra clearly distinguish the PS and LDPE by the positions and amplitudes of the resonant peaks.


Conducting AFM (CAFM):
