Fast Scan

FastScan® is a revolutionary AFM mode from Bruker that enables scanning speeds > 20x compared to a typical high-performance AFM.  Using specially engineered high-bandwidth probes, the fast scanning AFM tracks the sample surface using a feedback loop, with each component in the loop contributing its own dynamics or delays.  The sum of all these component responses determine the full speed system transfer function (FSTF), establishing the FastScan's speed performance.  With FastScan®, users can also survey samples at speeds >100x without ringing or sacrificing image quality and desired resolution.
