Asylum Research’s blueDrive photothermal excitation is available on its Cypher atomic force microscopes. blueDrive makes tapping mode imaging simple, stable, and accurate. It replaces the conventional piezoacoustic excitation mechanism, instead using a blue laser to directly excite the AFM cantilever photothermally. This results in an ideal cantilever drive response in both air and liquids, which provides significant performance and ease-of-use benefits for tapping mode imaging. blueDrive is compatible with the range of tapping mode techniques in air and liquid. It is also completely safe for temperature-sensitive samples, with adjustable laser power to ensure the optimal drive power for probes in air and liquid.

Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
