Atomic Force (AFM)

2022 CBC Keck Center AFM Workshop

The AFM workshop is open to all UA students and researchers who will be using Atomic Force microscopy for their research projects. Lab attendance is limited to 12 and preference will be given to new AFM users. Lecture attendance is not limited. The 3-day AFM workshop will consist of lecture and lab sections geared to introduce new users to the technique. Topics covered will include contact mode, intermittent contact mode (tapping or AAC mode), liquid imaging, and data analysis.

DriveAFM Workshop (Oct 26, 2021)

ImageNanosurf is excited to announce that we will be in Arizona in October and we are inviting you to see our new high performance DriveAFM in action. Come explore the possibilities of atomic force microscopy, interact with the invited speakers and Nanosurf, and have lunch on us. If you have a sample of your own you would like to image, please sign up for submitting a sample and our team will be in touch to be sure we are prepared.

All experience levels and research applications are welcome.

Preliminary agenda
- Introduction to Nanosurf and DriveAFM

Keck/Asylum AFM Webinar Feb 5th at noon

Asylum Research is sponsoring an AFM webinar for UArizona researchers.  Dr. Erin Ratcliff (CHEE) will describe methodologies for evaluating chemical, electronic, and transport phenomena at the nanoscale of printable electronic materials for energy conversion and biological sensing technologies. Bob Newton from Asylum Research will discuss major application areas for the Cypher S AFM and give case studies of unique experiments which are enabled by this instrument.

The Webinar will be held on Feb 5th at 12 pm.

Oxford AFM Lunch & Learn - Oct 24, 2019

High performance Atomic Force Microscopes (AFMs) are designed to uncover surface properties ranging from shape and texture to local stiffness and conductivity in various application fields including semiconductors, data storage and polymers, to name a few.

Oxford Instruments Asylum Research will present an overview of their new Jupiter XR AFM. This is an excellent opportunity for students, researchers and team leaders to learn about how AFM could impact their projects or just to get a glimpse of the advances of AFM technology.

Biological Applications of AFM Seminar (JPK Instruments)

BioScience AFM – Capturing Dynamics from Single Molecules to Living Cells
Stefan Kaemmer, PhD – JPK Instruments USA
 
The last three decades have established the atomic force microscope (AFM) as an indispensable tool for high-resolution structural analysis of specimens ranging from single molecules to complex biological systems. AFM currently offers premium spatial resolution of the analyzed samples while simultaneously being able to correlate topography and mechanics at near native/physiological imaging conditions.
