Oxford Instruments Asylum Research is the technology leader in atomic force microscopy. Asylum Research AFMs are widely used in both academic and industrial research labs to characterize polymers, thin films, piezo and ferroelectric materials, cells and biomolecules, and also in emerging fields of research in energy storage and generation, two-dimensional and low-dimensional materials (e.g. graphene and molybdenum disulfide), and mechanobiology. Asylum’s MFP-3D™ and Cypher™ AFMs offer unmatched performance and versatility and are available with a full range of techniques for measuring nanoscale electrical properties and the most comprehensive set of tools for quantitative measurement of nanomechanical properties.
Asylum’s MFP-3D family of AFMs includes four different models that span a wide range of applications and budgets. The MFP-3D Infinity™ is the flagship of the family, offering the highest performance, simplest operation, and widest range of capabilities. The MFP-3D Classic, priced for mid-range budgets, provides high performance and versatility that exceeds most AFMs. The MFP-3D Origin is the most affordable model, offering best-in-class performance, many accessories, and an easy upgrade path. Finally, the MFP-3D-BIO integrates with an inverted light microscope to support biological and photonic applications.
Cypher 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 highest resolution, most accurate images possible today, >20X faster imaging with small cantilevers, exceptional ease of use, and integrated thermal, acoustic and vibration control. The Cypher ES adds gas and liquid environmental control, temperature control, and enhanced chemical compatibility to the extraordinary performance of the Cypher S. Both models are available with Asylum’s exclusive blueDrive™ photothermal excitation for simpler, more stable, and more quantitative tapping mode imaging.
You are more than welcome to run live measurements on our Cypher System in the Foyer of the TU Darmstadt at the MSE 2016.
If you want to bring special samples, please give us an information, so we can prepare everything needed.
Our application scientists will answer all your questions and will provide solutions for your AFM issues.
Learn more about AFM, cantilevers and AFM modes.
