Surface Science

Surface science is the study of physical and chemical phenomena that occur at the interface of two phases, including solid–liquid interfaces, solid–gas interfaces, solid–vacuum interfaces, and liquid–gas interfaces. It includes the fields of surface chemistry and surface physics.

Below is a list of partners we work with in this field:

  • Elegant Combination of Low-profile and High Performance. Onyx vibration isolation table is designed to isolate sensitive equipment from vibrations caused by foot traffic, HVAC systems, nearby operating machinery, etc. It consists of a steel tabletop supported by pneumatic isolators, which are easily inflated using an air-pump or other automatic air source. The Onyx Series integrates effortlessly with The Silencer acoustic enclosure to provide a complete environmental solution.


  • Efficient Acoustic Isolation that Rests on Any Desktop! The Silencer acoustic enclosure is Herzan’s solution for AFM/SPM setups that require versatility and ease of use. Herzan began working with makers and users of SPMs to develop a solution that is ideally suited to the needs of a modern research lab. The Silencer combines the high quality features that have become standard to all Herzan enclosures, with an amazing cost-effective value for acoustic isolation.


  • The TS Series is the industry leader in vibration isolation performance and usability, delivering sub-hertz isolation (all 6 DOF) in a plug-and-play form factor. The isolation technology within the TS Series consists of piezoelectric vibration sensors, control electronics, and actuators, which dynamically respond to vibrations within the environment and provide an attenuated signal to the top plate of the isolators.

    With several unique features setting itself a part from competing solutions (e.g. automatic leveling, LCD Display, External vibration monitoring), the TS Series becomes the perfect solution for users wanting to achieve the best vibration isolation performance available, while not sacrificing on design or functionality.

  • Asylum offers two series of vibration isolation tables, the Herzan AVI Series and the Table Stable Series. Either will fit nicely in the matching acoustic enclosures. We recommend the AVI-SA for the MFP-3D Stand Alone and the AVI-BIO for the MFP-3D-BIO.

  • The Attension range of contact angle meters and precision tensiometers provide outstanding ease of use for liquid and solid surface characterization in research and industrial processes.

  • This resolution is 100x better than previously reported and is made possible by our thermal probe technology which enables you to:
    • Image the sample of interest with sub-30nm spatial resolution (in contact or intermittent contact modes) and identify the regions whose thermal properties that you’d like to study.
    • Heat a local area of less than 100nm diameter with the probe to temperatures of over 400˚C to study thermal properties such as glass transition or melting point.
    • Local heating allows very fast heating rates up to 600,000˚ C/min and eliminates thermal drift issues that plague bulk sample heating approaches.
    • Image with a heated tip to induce local thermal events over specific regions of a surface.
    • Map the temperatures across the sample with a resolution of <0.1 ºC
