Copper deposition with Cypher EC Cell

The Electrochemistry Cell for the Asylum Research Cypher ES is the premier solution for in situ AFM characterization of electrochemical processes. Its simple modular design provides great versatility and compatibility with a wide range of materials. Best of all, it's based on the Cypher ES AFM — the world’s highest resolution, fast scanning AFM with superior environmental control and ease of use for maximum productivity.

  • Asylum's fully sealed EC cell comes in a comprehensive kit that includes a uniquely designed probe holder, a liquid cup for easy imaging in fluid, an EC sample holder, and standard electrodes
  • For use with any potentiostat, depending on the electrochemical application
  • Compatible with most common solvents, electrolytes, and electrode materials
  • Simple to clean and assemble, even with gloves
  • Optional heating and cooling stages allow investigation of electrochemical thermodynamics
  • Glovebox option provides the ultimate environmental control with no performance compromises
