Ergo’s workflow guides you from loading a new probe to aligning the laser with a few clicks. In the background, Asylum’s proprietary GetReal™ technology automatically calibrates the cantilever each time to help ensure the most consistent results from day-to-day.
The most common AFM measurement is the acquisition of topographical images in air. Ergo has embedded Asylum’s proprietary AUTOPILOT™ algorithm, which automatically calculates the optimal imaging settings and starts producing high quality data from the first scan line.
Ergo shares a common core and workflow concept with the Oxford Instruments AZtec software for SEM and TEM analyzers. This tried and tested platform allows users to focus on results and not on the equipment.
AFM images can be analyzed directly in Ergo without the need for other software. A workflow guides the user to sort, process, and analyze AFM data. Results are stored directly with the images so they cannot be lost, and the raw data is never altered.
Ergo works in concert with Asylum’s IGOR Pro-based software that is supplied with every system. Expert users have the ability to operate the complete range of advanced modes and exercise the full customization capabilities of the AFM. Together, Ergo and Igor provide users with unmatched flexibility to achieve all of their research goals.
