Abstract:
Asylum Research, the technology leader in scanning probe/atomic force microscopy (AFM/SPM), announced today that it has installed the first Cypher AFM system in China at the South China Normal University in Guangzhou. Cypher, the world's fastest and highest resolution AFM, was installed in the lab of Professor Xingsen Gao at the SCNU Institute for Advanced Materials by personnel from Asylum Research and Grapes Hangzhou Technology Co. Ltd, Asylum's representative in China. Professor Gao's group will use Cypher to investigate advanced piezoelectric, ferroelectric, and multiferroic materials.

Asylum Research Installs First Cypher™ AFM in China

Professor Gao commented, "Our new Cypher AFM is the first of its kind in China. We chose Cypher because of its true atomic resolution and sophisticated PFM imaging techniques. We are planning to use it as a stable and powerful platform for probing various nanoscale properties on multifunctional materials with integration of other electrical characterization methods."

Dr. David Beck, VP of Sales for Asylum Research in the Asia Pacific Region added, "We are very excited to have Professor Gao as our first Cypher user in China. His research on multifunctional materials will take full advantage of Cypher's revolutionary design, specifically fast scanning, high resolution, and advanced PFM modes such as Dual AC Resonance Tracking (DART) and Band Excitation (BE). We expect that this will be the first of many more Cyphers in China as researchers see the benefits of its unique and advanced capabilities."

Jason Cleveland, CEO of Asylum Research, will be demonstrating the Cypher AFM system at the upcoming China NANO 2011 conference in Beijing from September 7-9 (Booth C29).

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, >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.
