The SSL consists of a 600 ft2 lab specifically engineered to provide a constant temperature, low noise environment for optimal AFM and SEM operation. Individual systems are located on isolated concrete slabs, and all 4 Bruker AFMs are situated atop vibration isolation tables and housed in acoustic dampening enclosures. A Herzan VA-2 3-axis accelerometer (PDF) is available for characterizing and monitoring the vibrational noise spectrum. More details regarding the SSL’s capabilities can be found in the SSL Brochure (PDF), and a recent quote regarding the SSL’s suite of Bruker AFMs can be found on the Bruker Surface Analysis website alongside testimonials from other high profile Bruker AFM users around the world.
