Agilent 5420 Atomic Force Microscope (AFM)

The 5420 AFM has been engineered by Agilent Technologies to provide lower noise, enhanced performance, and greater versatility. Featuring a new ergonomic design, this scientific-grade microscope delivers atomic-scale resolution at a remarkably affordable price.

Open access to the scanner and sample plates, along with easy alignment of the microscope’s optics, simplifies the use of the 5420. The scanner mounts quickly and is held in place with a clamp closure. In addition, the scanner’s easy-to-load nose cones allow fast, convenient switching between imaging modes. These nose cones are made from PEEK polymers, have low chemical reactivity, and can be used in a wide range of solvents.

The 5420 also offers advanced new electrical characterization capabilities. One technique, electrical single-pass mode, takes full advantage of new low-noise electronics to enable high-resolution Kelvin force microscopy (KFM), electric force microscopy (EFM), and piezo force microscopy (PFM). In addition, Agilent’s scanning microwave microscopy (SMM) mode is the only mode in the market that allows highly sensitive calibrated capacitance & dopant density measurements.
