Atomic Force Microscopy Facility

In our Atomic Force Microscopy facility, we have four state-of-the-art AFMs:

  • a JPK NanoWizard ULTRA SPEED AFM with fast scan capability, Quantitative Imaging (QI) mode, advanced force spectroscopy, DirectOverlay capability and force pulling of up to 100 microns. The AFM can also be placed onto an Olympus IX71 inverted optical microscope with fluorescence and total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF) capabilities.
  • an Agilent 5500 AFM with closed loop scanning in the x, y and z directions and environmental control capability.
  • an Asylum Research Molecular Force Probe-3D Inverted Optical system (biological samples, heating, closed loop scanning in the x, y and z directions) which is placed on a Nikon TE2000 epifluorescence inverted optical microscope.
  • a Veeco Picoforce Multimode AFM (closed loop scanning in the z direction, high temperature heater, electrochemical capability).
