CYPHER Family AFM

Cypher L AFM

Cypher L AFM

The Cypher L is the lowest cost member of the Cypher AFM family, setting new expectations for performance and ease-of-use for AFMs in its price range. New Ergo software provides the core capabilities commonly used in research fields including 2D materials, polymer science, thin film deposition and etch processing, and quantum technology. As part of the award-winning Cypher product family, the Cypher L is readily upgraded to the Cypher S, ES, or VRS1250, allowing you to invest in a quality AFM platform now and add new capabilities as you need them.

Future-proof your research by investing in a fully upgradable AFM

  • Cypher L is fully upgradable, allowing you to add new capabilities as you need them
  • Can be upgraded to the more powerful Cypher S, Cypher ES, and Cypher VRS1250 models to enable advanced characterization modes, environmental control accessories, and even video-rate imaging speeds
     
Cypher S AFM

Cypher S AFM

The Asylum Research Cypher S is the base model of the Cypher AFM microscope family. The Cypher S was the first commercially available fast-scanning AFM, and the Cypher family AFMs remain the only full-featured fast-scanning AFMs that are compatible with a complete range of modes and accessories. Cypher AFMs have also earned a reputation for easily achieving higher resolution than other AFMs. The Cypher S is a great AFM for both materials science and life science research for ambient measurements in both air and liquids. The Cypher S is fully upgradable later for environmental control options or even video-rate scanning.

Routinely achieve higher resolution than other AFM microscopes

  • Unmatched mechanical stability—noise floor half  that of any other AFM
  • Exceptionally low drift—higher resolution and straight lattice lines
  • Low noise electronics—no artifacts from electronic noise sources

Fast scanning with results in seconds instead of minutes

  • Scans 10-100× faster than typical AFMs
  • Supports the fastest, smallest probes (3×9 µm spot size—optional)
  • Fast scanning that goes beyond topography—also nanomechanics, CAFM, PFM

Every step of operation is simpler for remarkable productivity

  • ModeMaster™ automatically configures software for selected mode
  • SpotOn™ makes the fully motorized laser and detector alignment one-click
  • GetReal™ automatically calibrates the cantilever spring constant and sensitivity
  • GetStarted™ automatically sets optimal parameters for tapping mode imaging
  • blueDrive™ makes tapping mode simpler, more stable, and more quantitative

Small footprint in the lab, huge potential to grow in capability

  • Full suite of nanomechanical characterization modes available for measuring viscoelastic properties (storage/elastic modulus and loss modulus)
  • Unmatched range of nanoelectrical and electromechanical characterization modes
  • Upgradeable to the Cypher ES for environmental control accessories and to Cypher VRS for video-rate imaging
  • Many standard operating modes and even more optional modes

Support that goes above and beyond your expectations

  • Includes a standard one-year comprehensive warranty
  • No-charge technical support and basic applications support for life
  • Affordable support agreements that offer extended warranties and advanced training
  • Easy upgrade path to the Cypher ES or Cypher VRS
     
Cypher ES Environmental AFM

Cypher ES Environmental AFM

The Asylum Research Cypher ES builds on the exceptional performance of the Cypher S and adds full environmental control features. The same high resolution, speed and stability are maintained while easily operating in controlled gas or liquid environments, at temperatures from 0-250°C, and in some of the harshest chemical environments. The Cypher ES is the ultimate AFM for the most demanding experimental requirements.

Enables gas and liquid perfusion through a sealed cell

  • Fully sealed sample cells maintain a controlled environment and eliminate the risk of leaks
  • Compatible with fast scanning and all environmental control accessories

Controls sample temperature over a wide 0–250°C range

  • Two options are available: Heating to 250°C or Heating and Cooling 0–120°C
  • Low-drift design lets you keep imaging while ramping the temperature
  • Quick and easy to setup and use, no external controllers, tubing, wires, etc.

Broadest compatibility with harsh chemicals

  • Sample cells are constructed so that only fused silica and the probe clip (PEEK or stainless steel) are in contact with liquid
  • Optional glovebox configuration allows use with oxygen or water sensitive materials
