Asylum Research Hosts a Webinar on March 20
News Mar 07, 2014
Asylum Research will host a new webinar on March 20, “AFM Imaging and Nanomechanics with blueDrive Photothermal Excitation”.
blueDrive is a new option available on the Asylum Research Cypher AFM that reinvents tapping mode imaging for remarkably simple, incredibly stable, and strikingly accurate operation.
“This webinar will be an excellent resource for AFM scientists wanting to learn more about the science behind this great new technique - it really makes everyday tapping AFM imaging easier and more quantitative,” said Dr. Aleks Labuda, Asylum Research Applications Scientist. “For those that want to brush up on cantilever oscillation theory, this will also be an excellent educational opportunity to learn more and ask questions.”
The webinar will discuss the benefits and challenges of tapping mode, cantilever response and piezo drive theory, the advantages of using blueDrive for cantilever excitation, implementation, and real-world examples for materials and life science applications.
The webinar is ideal for all current AFM users, both novice and advanced, and those wanting to learn the physics and science behind this powerful new technique.
Two one-hour webinar sessions will be held that includes a question and answer period after each.
Nano-tech Diagnostic Can Indicate Cancer or Thrombotic Risk in One Drop of BloodNews
A team of international researchers led by Professor Martin Hegner, Investigator in CRANN and Trinity’s School of Physics, have developed an automated diagnostic platform that can quantify bleeding – and thrombotic risks – in a single drop of blood, within seconds.READ MORE
Targeting Headaches and Tumors with Nano-SubmarinesNews
Scientists have developed a new method to enable miniature drug-filled nanocarriers to dock on to immune cells, which in turn attack tumors. In the future, this may lead to targeted treatment that can largely eliminate damage to healthy tissue.READ MORE
