Asylum Research Corp.
Santa Barbara, Calif.-based Asylum Research Corp., a scanning
probe/atomic force microscopy (AFM) provider, has delivered a Cypher AFM and an
MFP-3D-BIO AFM to the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the
University of Melbourne in Australia. The AFMs will be used to develop nano-scale
experiments and theories to measure and predict interactions, collisions and coalescence
between droplets and bubbles that underpin applications of foams, emulsions and
other soft matter materials. They also will allow researchers to visualize the
interactions and surface in soft matter materials through high-resolution imaging
on the nano- to molecular scale.
