The NaioAFM allows new users to acquire meaningful AFM images and data in as little as two hours. In the context of a highly time-constrained course, when perhaps only a total of twelve lab hours are planned, this efficiency is a significant advantage over many other atomic fo...

As a long-time Nanosurf customer, I highly value Nanosurf’s exceptionally fast and competent expert-level support. They were of great help in ironing out technical issues with our initial glovebox implementation and responded quickly and positively to all of my requests.

We have been using the FlexAFM system for the last couple of years. The ease of use and its robustness helped us publish a number of articles in high impact journals. I'm very pleased with the performance of your AFM system and would highly recommend your systems for other cus...

In my lab at ESPCI, we study the interfacial dynamics of soft materials. Usually, a polymeric material makes up either the surrounding fluid or a surface layer and a colloid can be used as a tracer or model object interacting with the surface. As such, AFM in general, and coll...

For several years we have used the Easyscan 2 and the NaioAFM to provide AFM training, for student research projects and demonstrations. These AFMs have provided us with years of exceptional use. They have allowed students to acquire complex skill sets associated with AFM imag...

AFM Theory: Learn how AFM works and all about AFM modes

Due to its flexibility, the atomic force microscope has become a common tool for material characterization alongside optical and electron microscopy, achieving resolutions down to the nanometer scale and beyond. The AFM can operate in environments from ultra-high vacuum to fluids, and therefore cuts across all disciplines from physics and chemistry to biology and materials science. This article describes the operating principle and most common measurement modes of atomic force microscopy, and some of the many properties that can be measured with AFM on the nanoscale.
