Asylum Research introduces the Cypher™ AFM, the first totally new small sample AFM/SPM in over a decade. More capability, more control, more functionality, more modularity, and more resolution – all with >20X faster scanning and striking ease of use.

Closed loop atomic resolution using sensors in all three axes ensures the highest resolution and most accurate images possible today. With the Cypher AFM, you no longer have to choose between the accuracy and control of closed loop and the low noise of open loop. Asylum’s third generation NanoPositioning System (NPS™) sensors are the quietest in the world today. With positioning accuracies better than 60 picometers in X, Y and Z, you not only achieve atomic resolution in closed loop, you also get the most accurate measurements, positioning and nanomanipulation possible.

SpotOn™ automated laser alignment provides extraordinary ease of use. With Cypher’s fully motorized laser and photodiode positioning, a mouse click aligns the laser spot on your cantilever and centers your photodetector.
