Abu Dhabi Institute Chooses Asylum Research MFP-3D™ AFM and NanoIndenter
News Sep 07, 2009
Asylum Research and the Masdar Institute of Science and Technology announced that the Institute’s Laboratory for Energy and Nano-Science (LENS) has acquired Asylum’s MFP-3D Stand Alone Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) and instrumented NanoIndenter to perform research aimed at improving the efficiency of thermoelectric materials and developing non-destructive tools for thin film characterization of photovoltaics.
The Institute is the dedicated to the research and development of sustainable energy solutions. The MFP-3D-SA is an atomic force microscope that will be used for three-dimensional measurements of different solid state materials at the nanometer scale.
The MFP NanoIndenter is a true instrumented indenter and will be used to investigate the mechanical properties of nanostructures and for a frequency-domain thermo-reflectance experiment for measuring the thermal properties of homogenous materials and sub-micron thin films.
Commented Dr. Matteo Chiesa, Assistant Professor at the LENS, “After reviewing many instruments I chose the MFP-3D as the best AFM combined with the most elegant and simple-to-use nanoindentation tool. Asylum Research professionalism was a striking factor in choosing the right characterization tool. Asylum Research has shown a dynamic attitude in providing a complete solution for the needs of my laboratory, which is part of a new graduate university in a region where technical support can be very challenging.”
