Bruker Corporation Introduces Solution for Organic Photovoltaics Research
Published: Aug 15, 2012
“Organic photoelectric materials are already finding large markets as OLEDs in mobile device displays. There is also interesting research being conducted on OPV devices,” said Mark R. Munch, Ph.D., president of Bruker Nano Surfaces Division. “Our new pcAFM accessory transforms the Dimension Icon AFM into a solution for dedicated nanoscale organic photoelectric material research.”
“Nanoscale structure and properties are at the core of key OLED and OPV performance parameters,” added David V. Rossi, executive vice president and general ,manager of Bruker's AFM Business. “Our new pcAFM module builds on our exclusive PeakForce Tapping™ technology to provide the best, highest resolution data advancing organic photoelectric material research.”
About the Dimension Icon Photoconductive AFM Module
The Dimension Icon pcAFM accessory is a modular addition to the Dimension Icon platform designed to retain the system’s top levels of performance while enabling photoconductivity measurements on OLEDs, OPVs and other photoelectric materials. It provides uniform backside sample illumination and can be fiber coupled to industry-standard solar simulators. In combination with Bruker’s exclusive PeakForce TUNA, it addresses the key challenge to avoid sample damage on fragile OLED and OPV samples, thus retaining highest spatial resolution photoconductivity data. It is fully compatible with Bruker’s turnkey 1ppm glove box configuration, guaranteeing that measurements are not compromised by environmental material degradation.
