The Asylum Research Photovoltaic (PV) option for the MFP-3D Infinity AFM enables high resolution electrical characterization with simultaneous customizable bottom-side sample illumination. The PV option gives investigators a turnkey, flexible, and cost-effective solution that can be used with a multitude of electrical characterization techniques and environmental control accessories found exclusively on the MFP-3D Infinity AFM.
Open modular optical design, based on standard Thorlabs components, allows filters, polarizers, and apertures to be added or switched easily.
Design avoids extraneous glass and associated light loss found in systems built around inverted light microscopes.
Standard LED-based illuminator is fiber-coupled to the base. Software control allows exquisite intensity control in 1% increments to >1 sun.
Easily accommodates other external light sources (e.g., solar simulators, Hg/Xe lamps) using commercially-available adapter plates to enable the use of a variety of light guides.
Adjustable focus ensures optimal illumination across a wide range of sample.
Compatible with many Infinity AFM environmental accessories, including a fully closed cell to image in ultra-low water/oxygen environments
