Abstract:
Asylum Research, the technology leader in scanning probe/atomic force microscopy (AFM/SPM), announced today that it has installed a dual system order for a Cypher™ AFM and MFP-3D-SA™ AFM at the Cluster of Excellence "Smart Interfaces" (CSI), Technische Universität Darmstadt in Germany in the lab of Professor Robert Stark, new professor for Physics of Surfaces in the Materials and Earth Sciences Department, and Dr. Elmar Bonaccurso, head of the new young researcher group, Experimental Interface Physics in Mechanical Engineering.

Asylum Research Installs Dual AFMs at CSI, Technische Universität Darmstadt

Santa Barbara, CA | Posted on December 9th, 2010

At the CSI, fluid-surface interfaces are investigated over nine length scales - from airplane wings to molecular and atomic interactions. The CSI group will use the Asylum AFM to probe fluid-surface interactions at the nanometer scale, matching this to the latest advances in atomic and molecular dynamic flow theory.

Professor Stark explained "We plan to investigate time-resolved atomic and molecular processes in liquids to gain a deeper insight and understanding of boundary dynamics. The ultimate goal of this highly interdisciplinary approach is to design the molecular boundary for benefits in the macroscopic world. The Asylum Research AFMs allow us to obtain the complete picture, from elasticity and material properties through high-speed, time-resolved atomic and molecular process imaging in liquids. We are very pleased with the possibilities offered by this advanced instrumentation and are also looking forward to working closely with the competent teams at Asylum Research and Atomic Force."

Dr. Lars Niemann, research coordinator at the CSI added, "As a fairly young research institute, it was important for us to purchase only the best instrumentation available, both to attract the best researchers and to ensure immediate scientific competitiveness - as such Asylum Research was a natural choice."

Benjamin Holmes, Sales Manager at our European subsidiary Atomic Force F&E GmbH commented, "From starring in the fictional CSI Miami television show to being chosen by the CSI Darmstadt, once again Asylum Research AFMs are confirmed as the best instruments for all investigations. Clearly, modern atomic force microscopy is too broad an area for one size fits all, and that's why we at Atomic Force F&E are really pleased by the research synergies that the Cypher and the MFP-3D offer. Any cutting-edge laboratory is ideally served with the speed and performance of Cypher and the flexibility of the MFP-3D. We are seeing a clear trend toward multi-instrument facilities and, thanks to our unique research-oriented approach, no company is better placed to serve these requirements than Asylum Research."

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 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.
