Asylum Research, an Oxford Instruments company, invites all Cypher™ and MFP-3D™ AFM users to enter their best AFM data, including images, force curves, or videos, in the Asylum Research Image Contest. [More]
Park Systems, a leader in Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) since 1997 announced today their first AFM image contest winner, Namuna Panday, a Graduate Student at Florida International University. [More]
The newly designed and innovative Park Systems PinPoint iAFM effectively solves the issues of traditional AFM thereby providing the most optimum solution to the FA engineers’ needs available in the nanotechnology industry today. [More]
In collaboration with colleagues from Berlin and Madrid, researchers at the Department of Physics at the University of Basel have pulled up isolated molecular chains from a gold surface, using the tip of an atomic force microscope (AFM). The observed signal provides insight into the detachment force and binding energy of molecules. The results have been published in the renowned scientific journal PNAS. [More]
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.
