Abstract:
Asylum Research, an Oxford Instruments company, will host a new webinar on March 20, "AFM Imaging and Nanomechanics with blueDrive Photothermal Excitation". blueDrive is a new option available on the Asylum Research Cypher AFM that reinvents tapping mode imaging for remarkably simple, incredibly stable, and strikingly accurate operation.

Asylum Research Hosts a Webinar on March 20: “Atomic Force Microscopy Imaging and Nanomechanics with blueDriveTM Photothermal Excitation ”

Santa Barbara, CA | Posted on February 20th, 2014

"This webinar will be an excellent resource for AFM scientists wanting to learn more about the science behind this great new technique — it really makes everyday tapping AFM imaging easier and more quantitative," said Dr. Aleks Labuda, Asylum Research Applications Scientist. "For those that want to brush up on cantilever oscillation theory, this will also be an excellent educational opportunity to learn more and ask questions."

The webinar will discuss the benefits and challenges of tapping mode, cantilever response and piezo drive theory, the advantages of using blueDrive for cantilever excitation, implementation, and real- world examples for materials and life science applications. The webinar is ideal for all current AFM users, both novice and advanced, and those wanting to learn the physics and science behind this powerful new technique.

Two one-hour webinar sessions will be held that includes a question and answer period after each. Registration for the 8:00am session is at: https://www3.gotomeeting.com/register/405218014 Registration for the 4:00pm session is at: https://www3.gotomeeting.com/register/752737982

About Asylum Research, an Oxford Instruments company
Asylum Research is the technology leader in atomic force microscopy for both materials and bioscience applications, dedicated to innovative instrumentation for nanoscience and nanotechnology. Founded in 1999, Asylum Research has over 300 years combined AFM/SPM experience among our staff. Asylum Research AFMs 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 MFP-3DTM family of AFMs sets the standard for AFM technology, with unprecedented precision and flexibility. Four configurations now comprise the MFP-3D family. The MFP-3D Origin, the most affordable member, offers performance and full upgrade potential. The full MFP-3D provides performance with the maximum versatility of a wide range of modes and accessories. The MFP-3D-BIOTM is the only full capability AFM integrated with commercial inverted optical microscopes for advanced bioscience research. In addition, our MFP NanoIndenterTM offers the only true instrumented indenting for quantitative measurements.

The CypherTM AFM is the highest resolution fast scanning AFM, now with environmental control. 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-OnTM 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 best warranties in the industry, ranging from two to five years, along with unmatched customer support. Asylum has global sales and service offices in Germany, UK, Japan, Shanghai and Taiwan.
