Thermal Properties

Park Systems offers a scanning thermal mode that easily measures the thermal properties of a sample. This mode features Park AFM’s trademark accuracy that allows users to collect reliable data.

Scanning Thermal Microscopy (SThM)

The SThM mode of Park AFM allows the user to find the local thermal conductivity of a sample by measuring heat transfer between tip and sample using a micro-fabricated probe.
