Abstract:
Asylum Research, a premier manufacturer of scanning probe/atomic force microscopes, has announced the installation of the MFP-3D Atomic Force Microscopy System at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) in Grenoble France. The MFP-3D System, a high precision AFM, and the first system to be installed at ESRF, will be used in the Surface Science Laboratory for both biological and hard condensed matter analysis applications.

"The ESRF Surface Science Laboratory provides users and staff with the most advanced and efficient tools for characterizing nanostructures. For many years the efforts have been dedicated to solid state physics and have resulted in the combination of local probe microscopies with X-ray characterization. In view of extending this to soft condensed matter and biology, the laboratory has selected the Asylum Research MFP-3D as the instrument to be associated with synchrotron X-ray analysis. The advanced operation, flexibility and open architecture of the MFP-3D will also help further the development of instruments more specifically dedicated to the X-ray environment," said Fabio Comin, Director of ESRF Surface Science Laboratory.

"We are extremely excited that ESRF has selected the MFP-3D as the instrument of choice for their research," said Dr. Iréne Revenko, Biology Applications Scientist. "Our dedication to providing the most technically advanced instrumentation has been confirmed by ESRF's instrument selection. We look forward to collaborating and supporting their efforts in this exciting field of research."

The MFP-3D AFM offers unprecedented, precision and accuracy for measuring many different samples. It has set the industry standard for advanced operation, control and flexibility.
