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.
The End of the Breathalyzer?News
Engineers have developed a miniature, ultra-low power injectable biosensor that could be used for continuous, long-term alcohol monitoring. The chip is small enough to be implanted in the body just beneath the surface of the skin and is powered wirelessly by a wearable device, such as a smartwatch or patch.READ MORE
Cactus Root Inspires Innovative MaterialNews
Scientists report that they have developed a material that mimics cactus roots’ ability to rapidly absorb and retain vast amounts of water with a minimal amount of evaporation. This unique material could lead to new and improved cosmetics, medical devices and aid oil separation and other oil-based engineering processes.
