Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) Virtual Workshop

The University of Washington (UW), in conjunction with Oxford Instruments Asylum Research, is hosting a two-day atomic force microscopy (AFM) virtual workshop on applications of AFM characterization for 2D materials, semiconductors, clean energy materials and dynamic biological processes such as protein assembly. Each day features talks from expert applications scientists at Asylum Research.

See hands-on demonstrations using the Asylum Research Jupiter XR AFM, the first and only large sample AFM capable of scanning up to 200mm samples, and Cypher VRS High Speed Video-Rate AFM allowing for real time high resolution video monitoring of nanoscale measurements.
