Equipments Details


The NanoWizard UltraSpeed II AFM is capable of producing images at a frame rate of up to 10 frames per second (which is 1000-fold faster than most standard AFMs). This microscope comes with both inverted and top-down optics allowing the user to study a broad range of crystal sizes. Various stages for temperature and solution flow control are available, which are essential for studying crystal growth and dissolution.

This system is based in the Centre for Nanoporous Materials department directed by Professor Mike Anderson.
