Learn How AFM Helps Advance Polymer Science and Engineering

AFM can provide broad insights into the nanoscale morphology and mechanical, thermal, and electrical properties of polymeric materials

Learn about techniques to characterize:

  • Morphology and structure
  • Nanoscale viscoelastic properties (storage and loss moduli)
  • Thermal properies including phase transition behavior
  • Solvent effects
  • Electrical and functional behavior

See actual examples on materials including:

  • Block copolymers
  • Rubber blends / tire formulation
  • Biodegradable plastics
  • Polymer structure at the single molecule level
  • Mechanical properties of polymer blend and composites
  • Mapping the transition temperature of polymer blends
  • Ferroelectric and piezoelectric polymers
