Cypher ES Polymer Edition for Nanomechanical Characterization

The Cypher ES Polymer Edition is a unique configuration of the Cypher ES AFM that is designed to exceed expectations in polymer science research. It has the same exceptional performance and diversity as the Cypher ES, but it also includes blueDrive photothermal excitation, three powerful nanomechanical characterization techniques from the NanoMechPro toolbox, and a high-temperature polymer heater.

Device Overview

  • Small footprint in the lab, but huge potential to grow in capability
  • Support that goes above and beyond customer expectations
  • Enables gas and liquid perfusion through a sealed cell
  • Achieve higher resolution on a routine basis compared to other AFMs
  • Fast scanning - results can be obtained in seconds instead of minutes
  • Every step of the operation is simpler for remarkable productivity
  • Temperature control of the sample from ambient to 250 °C
  • Broadest compatibility with harsh chemicals

Features and Benefits

Routinely Achieve Higher Resolution Than Other AFMs

  • Unrivaled mechanical stability — Noise floor is half  that of any other AFM
  • Low noise electronics — No artifacts from electronic noise sources
  • Incredibly low drift — Higher resolution and straight lattice lines

Fast Scanning With Results in Seconds Instead of Minutes

  • Scans 10-100× quicker than conventional AFMs
  • Rapid scanning that extends beyond topography — also CAFM, PFM, nanomechanics
  • Supports the fastest, smallest probes (3×9 µm spot size — optional)

Every Step of Operation is Simpler for Remarkable Productivity

  • ModeMaster configures software for the selected mode
  • GetReal calibrates the cantilever spring constant and sensitivity
  • SpotOn aligns the motorized laser and detector in just one-click
  • blueDrive makes tapping mode simpler, more quantitative, and more stable
  • GetStarted automatically sets optimal parameters for tapping mode imaging

Small Footprint in the Lab, Huge Potential to Grow in Capability

  • A complete suite of nanomechanical characterization modes is available for quantifying viscoelastic properties (storage/elastic modulus and loss modulus)
  • Can be easily upgraded to the Cypher VRS for video-rate imaging
  • Unparalleled range of nanoelectrical and electromechanical characterization modes
  • Numerous standard operating modes and even more optional modes

Support That Goes Above and Beyond Expectations

  • Standard one-year comprehensive warranty
  • Lifetime free technical support and basic application support
  • Affordably priced support agreements with extended warranties and specialized training
  • Effortless upgrade path to the Cypher VRS

Enables Gas and Liquid Perfusion Through a Sealed Cell

  • Compatible with quick scanning and all environmental control accessories
  • Completely sealed sample cells sustain a controlled environment and remove the risk of leaks

Includes Sample Temperature Control from Ambient to 250 °C

  • The optional Heater-Cooler extends the sample temperature range to 0–120°C
  • Fast and effortless to set up and use with no external controllers, wires, tubing, etc.
  • Low-drift design enables users to continue imaging while ramping the temperature

Broadest Compatibility With Harsh Chemicals

  • Sample cells are built so that only fused silica and the probe clip (PEEK or stainless steel) are in contact with liquid
  • Optional glovebox configuration enables use with oxygen or water-sensitive materials
