Automated Spring Constant Calibration
You would never say that you are "2.5 Volts tall" or that you "gained 1.5 Volts on holiday." The Volt is the wrong unit to measure height and weight. It's difficult to interpret until converted to real, physical units. Yet in the world of atomic force microscopy (AFM), many of us are accustomed to seeing the cantilever deflection, amplitude, and force measured in Volts. That's because the conventional process to calibrate the cantilever is not trivial, requires a stiff sample, and poses some risk of damage to the tip. Asylum Research's GetReal automated probe calibration feature, exclusive to our MFP-3D™ and Cypher™ families of AFMS, makes this calibration simple, safe and accurate. So don't settle for Volts, GetReal!
