Abstract:
Asylum Research, the technology leader in scanning probe/atomic force microscopy (AFM/SPM), in collaboration with LENS (Laboratory for Energy and Nano Science), MASDAR Institute of Science and Technology, was recently invited to showcase the MFP-3D™ AFM at the World Future Energy Summit (WFES) 2010 in Abu Dhabi.

Asylum Research and LENS Invited to Demonstrate MFP-3D AFM at World Future Energy Summit, Abu Dhabi

Santa Barbara, CA | Posted on March 19th, 2010

The WFES is the most important meeting of its kind for discussion of world future energy needs and solutions. The event was attended by government officials, industry leaders, policy makers, investors, activists, and scientists from more than 130 countries where they discussed the challenges of rising energy demands and viewed new technologies that will help to achieve a cleaner and more sustainable future.

The MFP-3D took center stage at the MASDAR Institute booth where attendees to the conference were able to see the AFM in action and discover the wide range of AFM applications for alternative/renewable energy applications. Asylum Research UK Applications Scientist, Dr. Mick Phillips, in charge of the AFM during the conference, commented: "The Atomic Force Microscope will be pivotal in the area of alternative/renewable energy research in the coming years, not only for characterising surface morphologies of these novel materials, but also to provide information as to the efficiency and viability of the materials via new electrical characterization techniques available on the MFP-3D."

Added Dr. Matteo Chiesa, Head of LENS at the MASDAR Institute of Science and Technology, "We are proud to attend the World Future Energy Summit 2010 here in Abu Dhabi. The research we are carrying out at LENS is critical to the development of new materials that will meet the challenge of rising energy demands and allow for more efficient energy production. The MFP-3D AFM allows us to carry out some of the most advanced research necessary to assess the properties of the energy harvesting materials produced at LENS and our collaboration with Asylum Research is vital for pursuing our goals in the field."

About Asylum Research
Asylum Research is the technology leader in atomic force and scanning probe microscopy (AFM/SPM) for both materials and bioscience applications. Founded in 1999, we are an employee owned company dedicated to innovative instrumentation for nanoscience and nanotechnology, with over 250 years combined AFM/SPM experience among our staff. Our instruments are used for a variety of nanoscience applications in material science, physics, polymers, chemistry, biomaterials, and bioscience, including single molecule mechanical experiments on DNA, protein unfolding and polymer elasticity, as well as force measurements for biomaterials, chemical sensing, polymers, colloidal forces, adhesion, and more. Asylum’s product line offers imaging and measurement capabilities for a wide range of samples, including advanced techniques such as electrical characterization (CAFM, KFM, EFM), high voltage piezoresponse force microscopy (PFM), thermal analysis, quantitative nanoindenting, and a wide range of environmental accessories and application-ready modules.
Asylum’s MFP-3D set the standard for AFM technology, with unprecedented precision and flexibility. The MFP-3D is the first AFM with true independent piezo positioning in all three axes, combined with low noise closed-loop feedback sensor technology. The MFP-3D offers both top and bottom sample viewing and easy integration with most commercially-available inverted optical microscopes.
Asylum’s new Cypher AFM is the world’s first new small sample AFM/SPM in over a decade, and sets the new standard as the world’s highest resolution AFM. Cypher provides low-drift closed loop atomic resolution for the most accurate images and measurements possible today, rapid AC imaging with small cantilevers, Spot-On™ automated laser alignment for easy setup, integrated thermal, acoustic and vibration control, and broad support for all major AFM/SPM scanning modes and capabilities.
Asylum Research offers the lowest cost of ownership of any AFM company. Ask us about our industry-best 2-year warranty, our legendary product and applications support, and our exclusive 6-month money-back satisfaction guarantee. We are dedicated to providing the most technically advanced AFMs for researchers who want to take their experiments to the next level. Asylum Research also distributes third party cantilevers from Olympus, Nanoworld/Nanosensors, and our own MFM and iDrive™ tips.
