Asylum Research - Oxford Instruments


The Technology Leader in Atomic Force Microscopy

Asylum Research specializes in making the best atomic force microscopes for academic research and industrial R&D. The passion for innovating AFM technology is what drove Asylum since 1999. Since then, Asylum has continuously worked to develop higher performance AFMs (e.g. resolution, speed), more useful AFMs (e.g. going beyond topography, extending to mechanical, electrical, and functional properties), and easier to use AFMs (e.g. eliminating artifacts, automating setup, making operation more consistent and predictable).

Asylum does more than just build the best AFMs. Asylum works with you to understand your problems and goals and then help you develop a plan to help solve them and achieve them. You will choose Asylum's AFM because you truly believe that it will advance your research, get your new product to market faster, or whatever it is that you’re trying to do. One of Asylum's customers, Sergei Kalinin at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, said that his Asylum MFP-3D “makes your daring experimental ideas come true.”

Need help? Call us or email us and you will get help from an AFM expert. Asylum AFMs are very reliable, but if you ever do have a problem, rest assured that we will get you back up and running quickly and painlessly. Repairs usually require more time in transit shipping than they spend in Asylum's factory.
