Abstract:
The Birck Nanotechnology Center (BNC) at Purdue University, in conjunction with Asylum Research, the technology leader in scanning probe/atomic force microscopy (AFM/SPM), will be hosting an Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) Workshop on February 17, 2011.

Asylum Research Hosts Atomic Force Microscopy Workshop at Purdue’s Birck Nanotechnology Center on February 17, 2011

Santa Barbara, CA | Posted on February 2nd, 2011

The Birck Nanotechnology Center hosts workshops for its constituents by aligning top tool developers and scientists to educate and train AFM users on state-of-art equipment located within its 187,000 square foot research facility. The workshop will include lectures and equipment/imaging demonstrations for both life science applications and electrical characterization of materials. Topics include AFM for biological applications, force measurements and mapping, combined AFM and optical imaging, cell imaging, and electrical characterization using conductive AFM. In addition, Purdue researchers Dr. Robert Moon, Assistant Professor of Materials Engineering, and Ryan Wagner, Graduate Student, will present a talk on force-displacement measurements.

‘We are extremely pleased to be teaming with the Birck Nanotechnology Center for this workshop and its benefits are twofold -- to support the continued education of AFM technology and applications to current researchers at the Center, as well as to introduce the technology to other scientists in and around the vicinity," said John Green, EVP of Sales for Asylum Research. "Ground-breaking research in AFM, including work done in the Arvind Raman Group, certainly confirms Birck as a leading US nanotechnology center."

When asked about the upcoming AFM workshop, Dr. Xin Xu, the scanning probe scientist in the Birck Center, said "The new bio-AFM facility built around Asylum's MFP-3D-BIO AFM has greatly improved Birck's scanning probe capability and has been an important step in promoting AFM use across Purdue's campus. I look forward to the workshop and hope it will convince others that the Birck Center is an important scanning probe asset."

The AFM Workshop will be held in Room 2001 at the BNC and is open to current AFM researchers looking to learn more about AFM techniques from Asylum and Purdue experts, as well as to those new to AFM that want to learn how AFM can be used in their own research. A small registration fee of $30 will be charged to cover lunch and coffee breaks. Additional information and registration for the workshop can be found at (www.conf.purdue.edu/atomic).

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.

About Birck Nanotechnology Center at Purdue University
The BNC leverages advances in nanoscale science and engineering to create innovative nanotechnologies addressing societal challenges and opportunities in computing, communications, the environment, security, energy independence, and health. The BNC opened in July of 2005. This facility comprises 187,000 square feet, providing office space for 45 faculty, 21 clerical and technical staff, and up to 180 graduate students. The heart of the building is a 25,000 sq. ft. Class 1-10-100 nanofabrication cleanroom (Scifres Nanofabrication Laboratory), part of which is configured as a biomolecular cleanroom with separate entry and gowning areas and isolated air flow. The building also includes over 22,000 sq. ft. of laboratory space external to the cleanroom, including special low vibration rooms for nanostructures research, with temperature control to less than 0.01 °C. Other laboratories are specialized for nanophotonics, crystal growth, bio-nanotechnology, molecular electronics, MEMS and NEMS, surface analysis, SEM/TEM, electrical characterization, RF systems, instruction and training, precision micro-machining and the Hall Nanometrology Laboratory. In addition, a unique nanotechnology incubator facility is provided for interaction with industry. At the 2009 NSF Nanoscale Science and Engineering Grantee's Conference, Purdue University was noted by Dr. Mihail C. Rocco, Senior Advisor for Nanotechnology for NSF, as the institution that has received the most Nanoscale Science and Engineering awards that year. Three other universities located in the Midwest also ranked in the top five, solidifying the Midwest’s dedication and expertise to nanotechnology research.
