Movies from the Cypher AFM Family Brochure

Though our Cypher VRS AFM is best known for its stunning movies that are made possible by video-rate imaging, the whole Cypher AFM family can aquire movies of nanoscale dynamics at fast-scanning speeds. This page shares several of those examples that are featured in the Cypher AFM Family brochure along with a few videos that highlight specific features of Cypher AFMs.

High speed PFM on a periodically poled lithium niobate sample

Imaged using the Cypher S at 39 Hz line rate. This example demonstrates that high speed AFM can go beyond topography.

SEBS polymer film annealing in toluene vapor

Imaged on a Cypher ES in the perfusion cell. The robust construction of the cell allows use of even aggressive solvents like toluene.

Webinar: There's No Other AFM Like Cypher

Roger Proksch and Mario Viani provide a thorough review of some of the many features and capabilities that set Cypher AFMs apart from all others.

Let's talk about how Cypher would help your research
 
Webinar: An Introduction to blueDrive Photothermal Excitation

blueDrive is just one of many features that make Cypher AFMs more powerful than all other. No other AFM in the world offers photothermal excitation.
