Park FX 40, a ground-breaking new class of AFM with built-in intelligence and optimum performance

Park Systems, the manufacturer of Atomic Force Microscopes (AFM) just announced Park FX40, a groundbreaking autonomous atomic force microscope, infused with innovative robotics, intelligent learning features, safety features, software and specialized add-ons. Park FX40 Atomic Force Microscope is the first AFM to automate all up-front set up and scanning processes, putting the intelligent Park FX40 in a groundbreaking new class of atomic force microscope.

The new Park FX40 Atomic Force Microscope is more than just dozens of new features and upgrades - it's an overhaul in functionality while retaining the same basic design elements, enabling AFM's to think and perform essential functions completely on their own. This will allow untrained researchers to achieve a number of formerly training-intensive tasks, and trained researchers to focus on what they're best at in their specialized fields, while the menial tasks like choosing and loading the correct probes, to automatically aligning the X, Y and Z beams along the axis, take care of themselves.

"Park FX 40 features significant enhancements that are completely new tech, never before seen on an AFM," adds Yoo.

Furthermore, Park FX40 has drastically upgraded many of the AFM's key aspects, including electromechanics for much reduced mechanical noise, smaller beam spot size, improved optical vision and multi snap-in sample chuck. Park FX 40 Atomic Force Microscopes are now located at key locations worldwide and will are now available for purchase.

"We are thrilled to be the first AFM user in North America to experience the Park FX40 Atomic Force Microscope, states James Hone, Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Columbia University. "As long-time users of Park AFMs, we are excited about the new features and increased capabilities in this new generation. In particular, the breakthroughs in automation of AFMs using artificial intelligence and robotics technology will dramatically boost our productivity and drive innovation across the field of nanometrology."

Park FX built in intelligence even allows users to place several samples at the onset (of the same or different types) and it will image them autonomously according to your requirements. The result is better research by obtaining publishable data easily and timely and acceleration of the research cycle for ultimate scientific and engineering success. Park FX40's unique environmental sensing self-diagnostics and head crash avoidance system ensures that Park FX40 is continuously operating at its optimum performance.

In collaboration with the expert scientists at Park's growing network of nanotechnology research centers worldwide, the product marketing team diligently worked on the design of Park FX over the last year. "Our scientists recognize the impact AFM has had on nanoscience innovation, allowing researchers to obtain scientific data never before witnessed," comments Dr. Sang-il Park , CEO and Founder of Park Systems. "Our ultimate goal with developing Park FX with autonomous features is to make the researcher's job easier as they open new doors in scientific discovery."

Known for their commanding lead in semiconductor advanced automated AFM systems and bringing AFM technology into the mainstream as the premier tool for nanoscale metrology, this latest development is part of a natural progression for Park Systems as they continue to lead the world in AFM innovation.



AngelTech Live III: Watch the virtual event ON-DEMAND!

AngelTech Live III was broadcast live on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and features online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

The event covered the whole spectrum of key developments affecting the compound semiconductor industry. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. This was considered a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

With 3 interactive sessions over 1 day AngelTech Live III proved to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
