Asylum Research Webinar: There's No Other AFM Like Cypher



One of the most exciting things about the field of atomic force microscopy is that it is still a vibrant, rapidly advancing technology. Please join Dr. Roger Proksch, Asylum Research President and Co-founder, and Dr. Mario Viani, Cypher Project Manager, for this informative, surprising, and enlightening review of recent technology advances on the Cypher AFM. Since its introduction in 2008, the Cypher has proven itself to be the world’s most capable and productive platform for AFM innovation. Scientists at Asylum Research have taken full advantage of that potential by:

  • Reinventing tapping mode with blueDrive photothermal excitation
  • Developing several techniques to measure storage and loss moduli
  • Introducing GetReal, the first automated cantilever calibration
  • Automating tapping mode image optimization with GetStarted
  • Proving that Cypher can routinely demonstrate extraordinary resolution
  • Enabling hassle-free environmental control – temperature, liquid perfusion, and chemical compatibility

For a long time now we have called the Cypher “the highest resolution fast scanning AFM.” But it has grown to be so much more, so unique in so many ways, that now we just say that “there’s no other AFM like Cypher.”
