In the business segment analytics CAN GmbH is offering a selection of analytical methods for the characterisation of nanoscaled materials. This selection contains several microscopical, spectroscopical and scattering methods. Furthermore CAN GmbH is offering methods for the investigation of nanostructured surfaces, the energy and gas transport through materials and the characterisation of rheological properties. In due of the research-oriented work at CAN in cooperation with the University of Hamburg the setups of the most measurement methods are very flexible and allow the investigation of various samples and sample forms. Also the evaluation of the results with the expertise at CAN GmbH is in cooperation with the consolidated knowledge of the University of Hamburg in nanotechnology.
