Micro Thermal Analyzer (μ-TA)



The micro thermal analyzer is equipped with a V-shaped platinum wire temperature probe as an interatomic force microscope (AFM) cantilever. The analyzer when energized makes it possible to perform thermal conductivity imaging in a micro area (submicron: up to several hundreds of microns) and thermomechanical analysis at a high temperature rise.
