Environmental Isolation System Designed for Optimizing Performance of AFM and Other Surface Imaging Tools

Ambios Technology, Inc. Releases New IsochamberTM

Santa Cruz, CA | Posted on August 28, 2006

In recent years, advances in micro and nano technologies have been changing the landscape in virtually every industry, from aerospace and defense, to biotech and energy. Benchtop instrumentation that is capable of visualizing these nanostructures, such as Atomic Force Microscopes, is enabling on-going advancement in these critical fields of study and development.

Factors limiting the nanoscale performance and resolution of these imaging and metrology instruments include mechanical, acoustic and thermal noise introduced by ordinary laboratory environments. Proper environmental isolation is essential for getting top performance from these tools.

Ambios now offers a superior environmental chamber for isolating high resolution metrology instrumentation from building vibrations, interior acoustic noise, and thermally induced drift. The new Isochamber provides 30dB of acoustic isolation, and features an integral 0.5Hz vibration isolation platform from Minus K Technology. This translates to better than 99% isolation efficiency acoustically and mechanically in key frequency regimes.


About Ambios Technology:
Established in 1996, Ambios Technology, Inc. is a manufacturer of high performance, low cost bench top metrology measurement equipment for the academic and general industrial research marketplaces. The company is headquartered in Santa Cruz, California, USA.
