The Cypher™ Atomic Force Microscope
The World’s Fastest AND Highest Resolution AFM
Asylum’s Cypher Atomic Force Microscope is the industry’s first new small sample AFM in over a decade, setting new standards for speed, resolution, stability, control, and modularity. Cypher provides low-drift closed loop atomic resolution for the most accurate images and measurements possible today, point defect atomic resolution, and >20X faster AC imaging with small cantilevers. Cypher achieves closed-loop atomic resolution using patented sensor technology for all three axes, combining the accuracy and control of closed loop with the resolution of open loop for the most accurate images and measurements possible today.
Cypher also sets the new standard for ease of use with its ground-breaking, fully automated SpotOn™ laser and photodetector alignment system. Additional capabilities include interchangeable light source modules that allow laser spot sizes down to 3µm for broad application and scan mode flexibility, and sub-pico Newton force measurements. The system includes an integrated enclosure which provides acoustic and vibration isolation, as well as thermal control for excellent image and measurement stability.
"The Cypher is the best AFM I have ever used. Cypher makes the work we do possible." Stephen Jesse, Oak Ridge National Laboratory
Cypher is by far the best, most stable and most configurable AFM I have ever used.” Andras Kis, EPFL Switzerland
