Home > Press > Oxford Instruments Asylum Research and the Center for Nanoscale Systems at Harvard University Present a Workshop on AFM Nanomechanical and Nanoelectrical Characterization, Aug. 21-22

Abstract:
Oxford Instruments Asylum Research and Harvard University's Center for Nanoscale Systems (CNS) announce an AFM Workshop and Tutorials Aug. 21-22. The workshop will focus on new techniques and instrumentation for nanomechanical and nanoelectrical characterization. Leading AFM scientists in their respective fields of materials and bioscience will present their latest results on the first day of the meeting. Invited speakers include: Kathy Aidala, Mount Holyoke; Tom Arruda, Salve Regina University; Bryan Huey, Univ. of Connecticut; Cristian Staii, Tufts University; Matt Whitfield, MIT; and Dalia Yablon, SurfChar LLC. AFM techniques and scans modes will be demonstrated live on the Asylum Research Cypher ESTM Environmental AFM. The second day of the workshop will include tutorial demonstrations on nanomechanics and electrical characterization techniques, including scanning microwave impedance microscopy (sMIM).

About Oxford Instruments Asylum Research, Inc.
Oxford Instruments Asylum Research is the technology leader in atomic force microscopy for both materials and bioscience research. Asylum Research AFMs are used for a wide variety of nanoscience applications in material science, physics, polymers, chemistry, tribology, biomaterials, and bioscience, including emerging applications in energy storage and generation, low-dimensional materials,
and biophysics.

Asylum’s MFP-3DTM family of AFMs includes four different models that span a wide range of performance, applications, and budgets. The new MFP-3D Infinity is the flagship of the family, offering the highest performance, simplest operation, and widest range of capabilities. The MFP-3D Classic, the original MFP-3D offered for mid-range budgets, provides high performance and versatility that exceeds most AFMs. The MFP-3D Origin is the most affordable model, offering the same performance as the MFP-3D Classic with many accessories and an easy upgrade path to advanced capabilities. Finally, the MFP-3D-BIO integrates with an inverted light microscope to support biological and photonic applications.

CypherTM is the highest resolution fast scanning AFM and is available in two configurations, the Cypher S and the Cypher ES Environmental AFM. They provide low-drift closed loop imaging for the most accurate images and measurements possible today, >20X faster imaging with small cantilevers, exceptional ease of use, and integrated thermal, acoustic and vibration control – all in a small footprint. Cypher AFMs routinely achieve higher resolution than other AFMs, as demonstrated by single point atomic defects in crystal lattices and imaging of the DNA double helix. The Cypher ES adds gas and liquid environmental control, temperature control, and enhanced chemical compatibility to the extraordinary performance of the Cypher S.

In addition to the best AFMs, Asylum Research also offers unmatched customer support that is free for the lifetime of the AFM and industry-leading warranties for the lowest cost of ownership of any AFM. Asylum has sales, applications and service staff in offices in the United States, Germany, United Kingdom, Japan, France, China and Taiwan and global distribution.
