Target audience: All AFM users

Keywords: Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM), Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM), probes, cantilever

August 24, 2016 (Santa Barbara, CA) Successful atomic force microscopy (AFM) imaging starts with choosing the right probe for your sample and scan mode. It’s one of the most important considerations when doing an experiment. Asylum Research’s webinar “How to Choose the Right Probe for Your AFM Experiments” aims to make all AFM users experts at probe selection. The webinar will be presented September 8, 2016, 8:00am PDT, by Asylum Research Applications Scientist, Dr. Ted Limpoco. Registration is at

“Choosing the right probe from hundreds available, even for an experienced user, can be a daunting task,” said Dr. Limpoco. “At Asylum, we scan an incredible number of different samples under various conditions and modes daily, so we have a deep understanding of what works and what doesn’t. This is an excellent opportunity to share our knowledge and experience with the entire AFM community.”

Topics discussed in the webinar include:
• AFM probe fundamentals and calibration
• Probe selection for imaging in air and liquid
• Probe selection for specific scan modes (e.g. MFM, high resolution imaging, nanomechanics)
• Specialized probes
• Real-world image examples
