The Asylum Research MFP-3D Origin+ Atomic Force Microscope offers high-resolution
imaging, supports large samples, and comes with a full range of imaging modes and
The Asylum Research MFP-3D Origin+ AFM features the same core performance as the MFP-3D
Origin but includes support for the complete range of innovative MFP-3D accessories.
High-resolution imaging in both air and fluid — 120 µm XY range and 15 µm Z (40 µm
Full suite of nanomechanical characterization modes available for measuring viscoelastic
properties (storage/elastic modulus and loss modulus)
Modern flexured and sensored scanner design
Large sample stage
Numerous environmental accessories for temperature control
Controlled gas or liquid environment options that are simple, safe, and effective
Unique accessories for applying external forces to a wide range of samples
Cantilevers are located in a box in the AFM lab. There is a log sheet next to them.
Facility users must record their use of tips.
General purpose tapping mode cantilevers are available for $21 each. Users will be
charged for a new training cantilever. Afterwards, users can purchase any other type
of cantilever themselves. Contact staff for a vendor list.
Oxford Instruments Asylum Research offers brochures and webinars related to the Origin AFM.
Michigan Tech offers many undergraduate and graduate courses related to materials
Some of these courses offer advanced study of surfaces.
MSE 5665 - Surface and Interface Science for Chemical and Materials Analysis
Coursework and hands-on laboratory experiences explore physical and chemical properties governing surface processes and the appropriate analysis techniques used to study interfaces and surface chemical reactions. Topics include principles of physical chemistry and materials science for understanding and applying modern surface analysis.
