Basic AFM Overview
The B-AFM is a basic AFM that provides essential AFM scanning. This AFM is ideal for scientists and engineers that want to visualize nanostructures on surfaces, as well as for educators that want to teach their students about AFM operation and its applications.
7-Step Scanning Software
The B-AFM 7-Step Scanning Software is designed for casual AFM users that want to obtain AFM images without the expertise. A user-friendly design makes the B-AFM ideal for teaching students the basics of AFM theory and operation.
Intuitive Light Lever Design
A unique design of the light lever makes aligning the system a routine procedure for users with limited experience. A removable probe holder makes changing probes quick and easy.
Linearized X, Y, and Z Scanners
Piezoelectric X, Y (50 µm) and Z (17 µm) scanners incorporate strain gauges that provide linear scans and rapid zoom-to-feature capabilities.
Standard AFM Scanning Modes
Scanning modes for the B-AFM include vibrating (tapping), non-vibrating (contact), phase, and LFM (Force/Distance). These modes will allow users to scan the most common types of samples.
The B-AFM is encased in an acoustic cabinet made from ¾” MDF and acoustic foam, creating a vibration isolation environment that will provide high-quality scans on almost any lab bench.
The B-AFM is designed for routine scanning and educational applications. With a low price point, it is ideal for scientists and engineers with bigger ideas than budgets. Routine scanning of basic samples is possible with the 7-Step Scanning Software, which is also helpful for students and first-time operators learning the mechanics of an atomic force microscope.
For more advanced users and complex samples, AFMWorkshop offers the AFM Control Software for the B-AFM. This is the same software used on all other AFMWorkshop products. Our AFMs are capable machines for the research, industry, and educational communities with applications ranging from nanotechnology to biology.
