Home > Press > Euro Atomic Force Microscopy Forum 2011

Abstract:
ETH Zurich, Atomic Force F&E GmbH and Asylum Research announce the third Euro AFM Forum 2011 to be held in Zurich, Switzerland on September 7 to 9 in cooperation with Prof. Ralph Spolenak at the campus Science City (Hönggerberg) of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH Zürich). The Euro AFM Forum agenda will include both invited and submitted talks, a poster session, an image contest and the very popular instrument and equipment labs done on the Cypher™ and MFP-3D™ AFMs. Topics will focus on AFM for both materials and life science applications. The EuroForum is open to all AFM researchers that are looking to share their research with the AFM community and to learn tips and tricks of instrumentation and software.

Euro Atomic Force Microscopy Forum 2011

Santa Barbara, CA | Posted on June 25th, 2011

Invited speakers include:
Lyubov Belova, KTH Stockholm
Rüdiger Berger, MPIP Mainz
Ivo Rangelow, TU Ilmenau
Andras Kis, EPFL Lausanne
Christan Greiner, KIT Karlsruhe
Céline Lichtensteiger, University of Geneva
Karim Bouzehouane, Thales
Alexander Jakob/Stefan Mayr, IOM Leipzig

Ludger Weisser, General Manager of Atomic Force F&E commented, "We are very pleased to welcome researchers to the EuroForum at ETH Zurich. After successful previous meetings at the University of Muenster and the Technical University of Munich, we have chosen the ETH Zurich due to its high scientific ranking within Europe. With currently seven installations, including two of our new Cypher AFMs, the ETH is currently among the highest concentration of Asylum AFMs in Europe. The Material Science department is known for its great scientific work and we are privileged that they have partnered with us for the 2011 AFM Forum."

Abstracts are currently being accepted for submitted talks and the poster session, with a deadline of August 15. The first circular is available for download at the conference website at:

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 fastest and highest resolution AFM.  Cypher provides low-drift closed loop atomic resolution for the most accurate images and measurements possible today, point defect atomic resolution, >20X faster AC imaging with small cantilevers, Spot-On™ automated laser and photodetector 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.
