AXON - Studio™ Software Module

Protochips has added another completely new software, the AXON - Studio™ which will be available for free download within the next weeks:

AXON Studio™ is a breakthrough platform that not only allows you to quickly and intelligently search entire datasets, but also provides unique and powerful analysis tools in a very modern and easy-to-use interface. Isolate a specific video clip tagged in AXON, then export high-quality video quickly and intuitively. AXON Studio™ allows you to combine data on a specific sample from different TEMs and then filter all data for a specific parameter (e.g. temperature) quickly and easily. Designed with a modern database structure built on images and metadata, extremely large data sets are cleaned, filtered, sorted and published quickly and easily. In addition, AXON Studio™ will intelligently optimize data storage to minimize dataset size by removing efficiently all unwanted or unnecessary data.

Asylum Research Announces the New Jupiter XR AFM

Large Sample AFM with the Jupiter XRNew - Jupiter XR

Few atomic force microscopes (AFMs) are equipped to offer high-speed imaging on large samples (e.g. those up to 200 mm diameter). Capturing images in about a minute instead of five or even ten minutes is a tremendous boost to productivity, but most fast scanning AFMs sacrifice scan range for scan speed. Therefore, the inspectable area for a given image may only be ~30 micrometers (μm) instead of ~100 μm.

Asylum Research recently developed the Jupiter XR – the world’s first and only large-sample AFM to offer both high-speed imaging and a large 100 μm inspectable scan range – to address the growing demand for high-throughput industrial metrology measurements with sub-micrometer resolution.

Jupiter XR Large Sample AFM

Setting thei Jupter XR apart from other large-sample AFMs is a fully-addressable high-speed stage that can quickly reach any point on samples with diameters up to 200 mm. It features an extended-range scanner that is as much as 20x faster than other large-sample AFMs and features an imaging range of up to 100 μm laterally and 12 μm vertically. Images can routinely be captured in under a minute, and a fully-motorized laser and detector setup make for a simple user experience. These features make the Jupiter XR scanner the most productive and versatile large-sample AFM available.

AXON - Synchronicity™ Software Module


Protochips has announced the launch of new revolutionary TEM operation platform - the AXON.

This platform enables to Lock your sample, TEM and imaging detectors together, synchronizing system parameters and data, so you can focus on the region of interest during any in situ measurement or during any column stabilization process (due to holder insertion or accelerating voltage change). 

  • AXON Prioritize the most important parameters (magnification, ramp rate, etc.). Let the system automatically control the experiment to deliver optimal results.
  • AXON Connect and synchronize ALL experiment data in real time. More complete data sets yield faster, better results.
  • AXON Focus on your sample and not the TEM controls. Never miss a moment as you change temperature, liquid, or a gas environment even at extreme magnifications.

AXON is Compatible with the major TEM manufacturers and cameras.
Based on patent pending technology.
