ALVTechnologies Philippines Incorporated, together with our manufacturer from Oxford Instruments Asylum Research, would like to invite you to join our webinar on the topic of Contact Mode Redefined: Unparalleled Resolution with the Vero AFM on July 18, 2024, 9:00 AM (Philippine Time)

The revolutionary new Vero AFM introduces a new era of contact mode imaging, offering unprecedented resolution and precise force control. Contact mode is a fundamental imaging technique in AFM and serves as the foundation for various derivative imaging modes. However, its performance has remained largely unchanged since the inception of AFM.

The Vero AFM incorporates a groundbreaking quadrature phase differential interferometry (QPDI) detector design, setting it apart from traditional AFMs that rely on optical beam deflection (OBD) technology. This innovative design significantly reduces the signal detection noise floor, enabling routine contact mode measurements with levels of resolution previously unattainable.

In this webinar, contact mode images demonstrating atomic resolution and moiré patterns in twisted bilayer graphene will be shown and discussed.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • An overview of the Vero interferometric AFM and QPDI detection
  • The operating limits of contact mode with traditional AFMs
  • How Vero AFM contact mode outperforms traditional contact mode


Dr. Ben Ohler is Senior Product Line Manager for the Jupiter and Cypher family of AFMs at Asylum Research. He received his Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the University of California Santa Barbara. He has worked as an applications scientist and in product marketing in the AFM industry for the past 23 years and for the last 10 years at Asylum Research.

Jason Li has more than two decades of AFM expertise and graduated from Stanford University with undergraduate and graduate degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering, respectively. He joined Asylum Research more than 20 years ago and has been involved with many aspects of the business throughout his career.
