Asylum Research Webinar: blueDrive Photothermal Excitation Makes Tapping Simpler and More Stable



blueDrive photothermal excitation is a new option available on the Asylum Research Cypher and Jupiter AFM's that reinvents tapping mode imaging for remarkably simple, incredibly stable, and strikingly accurate operation.

“This webinar will be an excellent resource for AFM scientists wanting to learn more about the science behind this great new technique – it really makes everyday tapping AFM imaging easier and more quantitative,” said Dr. Aleks Labuda, Asylum Research - Research & Development Scientist. “For those that want to brush up on cantilever oscillation theory, this will also be an excellent educational opportunity to learn more and ask questions.”

The webinar will discuss the benefits and challenges of tapping mode, cantilever response and piezo drive theory, the advantages of using blueDrive for cantilever excitation, implementation, and real-world examples for materials and life science applications. The webinar is ideal for all current AFM users, both novice and advanced, and those wanting to learn the physics and science behind this powerful new technique.
