Free AFM Workshop: Nanomechanics, semiconductors, cells, more on agenda

(September 9, 2010) — Asylum Research and Harvard University’s Center for Nanoscale Systems (CNS) will conduct a free workshop with a focus on nanomechanics at Harvard University, Haller Hall (Geo Museum Room 102), September 30 to October 1, 2010. This workshop will include lectures and equipment demonstrations on atomic force microscopy (AFM) applications from cell mechanics to semiconductor characterization. The equipment demonstrations will allow attendees to “ask the expert” during real-time imaging sessions on the Asylum Research MFP-3D AFM.

“This is an excellent opportunity for our researchers to learn the type of work being done in AFM in both materials and life science applications. The Asylum Research scientists are extremely knowledgeable and the tips and tricks that they provide during the equipment demonstrations are invaluable,” said Jiangdong Deng, Harvard CNS Nanofabrication Facility Manager.

“We are very pleased that Harvard has invited us to do our second workshop here. With a large AFM community in the area, it’s an ideal venue to highlight the research that’s being done at Harvard and the many other excellent research institutions in New England,” commented Asylum Research Scientist and former Harvard postdoctoral research fellow, Nicholas Geisse.

The workshop is free to all researchers that are looking to learn more about AFM. Attendees must register and equipment demonstrations will be based on a first-come, first-served basis due to limited space. Registration and additional information can be found on the workshop Website:

Asylum Research is the technology leader in atomic force and scanning probe microscopy (AFM/SPM) for both materials and bioscience applications.
