Cypher S AFM

CypherTM  is the World’s Highest Resolution AFM

Graphite AtomesThe Cypher utilize unique closed loop atomic resolution using sensors in all three axes ensures the highest resolution and most accurate images possible today.

NanoPositioning System (NPS™) sensors are the quietest in the world today.

Positioning accuracies better than 60 picometers in X, Y and Z.

SpotOn™ automated laser alignment provides extraordinary ease of use. With Cypher’s fully motorized laser and photodiode positioning, a mouse click aligns the laser spot on your cantilever and centers your photodetector.

Laser spot sizes as small as 3µm enable high-speed AC imaging with small cantilevers. Cypher provides the industry’s smallest spot size, allowing you to use cantilevers smaller than 10µm for fast imaging and sub-picoNewton force measurements.

High resolution top-view optics with Köhler illumination provides crystal clear viewing of your sample and tip.

The CypherTM Advantages:

  • Closed loop imaging from tens of microns down to atomic scales
  • Small cantilevers for high-speed scanning
  • High-speed, low-noise force measurements
  • High-bandwidth data acquisition
  • Diffraction-limited optical sample viewing/imaging
  • Automated laser alignment

 The blueDrive Photothermal Excitation option makes tapping mode imaging simpler, more stable, and more quantitative. blueDrive produces an almost ideal cantilever response by directly exciting the cantilever photothermally. This provides significant ease of use and performance benefits for imaging topography, mechanical, electrical, and magnetic properties in air and liquids.
