Agilent Technologies Atomic Force Microscopes Support Growing Nanotechnology Curriculum at University of Northern Iowa

CHANDLER, AZ | Posted on February 4th, 2008

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced that the University of Northern Iowa has purchased an Agilent 5500 atomic force microscope (AFM) for electrical characterization and materials science studies, the fourth Agilent-manufactured AFM acquired by the university in the last year. The school purchased the three other atomic force microscopes from Agilent to support its growing nanotechnology curriculum.

"We're extremely pleased that the University of Northern Iowa has chosen Agilent as their primary AFM provider," said Jeff Jones, operations manager for Agilent's AFM facility in Chandler, Ariz. "In addition to the high performance afforded by our atomic force microscopes, we believe quality customer service has played an important role in their purchase decisions. Our fast delivery and installation, along with on-site training, helped get them up and running quickly."

The university's most recent Agilent AFM is a 5500 system equipped with a closed-loop scanner, lithography capabilities, and AC Mode III for advanced electrical measurements. This versatile in situ research tool is being shared by a biology professor, two physics professors and a chemistry professor, who will use it to conduct independent studies in their respective fields.

"Agilent is a tremendous technology partner," noted Dr. Cliff Chancey, head of the Department of Physics at the University of Northern Iowa. "Our association with Agilent will continue to advance our nanotechnology education and research efforts."

Agilent plans to host a nanotechnology summit in Iowa later in 2008, drawing attendees from the University of Northern Iowa, the University of Iowa, Iowa State University and other schools within the region.
