We have two MFP-3D AFMs.

One of them is inside an acoustic isolaton enclosure which provides excellent acoustic protection, low frequency passive vibration isolation and protect the instrument from air currents. This AFM is set up on a Herzan isolation table which has a granite top.

The other one is sitting on a TMC 63-544 Micro-g Lab Table which is a high performance vibration isolation laboratory table that provides superior vibration control for loads up to 350 pounds (160 kg).

Benefits of the MFP-3D

This instrument is ideal for many applications including physics, material science, polymers, chemistry, nanolithography and quantitative nanoscale measurements. The MFP-3D has the flexibility to acquire your data, analyze it and even make publication-ready graphics.
