Oxford Instruments Asylum Research Joins the MIT.nano Consortium

The MIT.nano Consortium is Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s way to get their research into the marketplace for real world use. The Consortium helps to fund the operations of research and development and then facilitates the process into the market. Oxford Instruments Asylum Research is the latest member of the Consortium.

Asylum Research have cutting edge atomic force microscopes (AFM) for nanoelectrical and nanomechanical characterization and imaging. They have since added two of their AFMs to MIT.nano’s equipment. One AFM – the Cypher VRS video-rate – will measure nanoscale dynamic processes at video frame rate. The other AFM – Jupiter XR – offers dual high-speed imaging and nanoscale dynamic process measurement. A scientist from Asylum Research will remain at MIT to help in research and development. With the help of an Asylum Research expert and the atomic force microscopes, MIT.nano will be able to extend their research to even smaller dimensions and provide deeper insights.
