EZ Liquids: AFM in Liquid

The Nano-Observer AFM is compatible with imaging in liquid environments with the accessory EZ liquids. It includes a specially designed cell and tip holder for imaging in liquids in both contact or resonant modes.

Manufacturer

CSI

CSInstruments is a French scientific equipment manufacturer specialised in the conception of Atomic Force Microscope and options designed for existing AFM (Nano-Observer AFM, Resiscope™, High Voltage Amplifier, Magnetic modules). The product range proposed by CSInstruments is designed and manufactured to help the scientific community to achieve nanometre performances that meet the research needs and requirements for actual and future nanoscience applications.

CSInstruments was founded by a team of experts working in AFM field for more than 20 years, starting as pioneer with some historical manufacturers. CSInstruments activity is also based on a qualified and dynamic team, experienced in the fields of mechanics, electronics and data processing. This expertise ensures innovation and performance in the production of AFM and achieves an excellent price/performance ratio!

Key Features

  • Laser angle compensation
  • No additional laser re-positionning
  • Long term stability imaging in resonant mode
  • Compatible with imaging in liquid environments
  • Special design holder minimises liquid evaporation
  • Specially designed cell and tip holder for contact or resonant modes

Liquid measurement

A connector can be included in the liquid cell to connect a bi-potentiostat to perform electrochemistry experiments. The holder has been designed so that the reflected laser spot angle is compensated when the cell is filled with liquid (water, PBS,…). The laser/photodetector alignment can be easily performed in ambient conditions. After the cell is filled with liquid, the only re-adjustment needed consists of moving the photodetector downwards to be centre with the laser spot. Another benefit of the special design of the holder is the minimising of the liquid evaporation rate, thus minimising the intrinsic drift of imaging in liquid environment.
