The combination of scanning probe microscopy with thermal probes offers interesting opportunities for the spatially resolved thermal analysis of polymers. Micro-thermal analysis (µTA - TA Instruments, µTA 2990 Micro-Thermal Analyzer) and nano-thermal analysis (nano-TA - Anasys Instruments, Nano Thermal Analyzer and Topometrix Explorer AFM) both employ a thermal probe as a local heating element and detector. The comparison between µTA and nano-TA for studying multiphase polymeric materials demonstrates the advantage of using different thermal probes for characterizing the same sample. This will improve the comparative analysis of samples having differences in the shape of their melting transition either due to the material or its thermal history. This also opens prospects to the study of local differences in melting behavior in multiphase polymeric materials.
