Upgrade your materials research capabilities with Park AFM

The characterization of nanomaterials has always been a technically difficult challenge for researchers and requires instrumentation with the versatility to match ever-changing application needs. Park Systems offers a high quality AFM product line replete with corresponding accessories and software to tackle a wide range of nanoscale research demands.


Park NX10

Park NX10 is today’s standard AFM for materials research. With Park NX10, materials scientists can demystify the nanoscale fundamentals of innovative materials. Researchers can secure a high rate of productivity and accuracy when scanning a material regardless of the sample’s softness, especially when using our True Non-Contact™ mode.

Park NX10 SICM Module

Park NX10 Scanning Ion Conductance Microscopy (SICM) provides materials researchers with both AFM and SICM techniques on the same Park NX10 system. SICM is a practical solution for imaging materials that are ultra-soft or otherwise difficult to scan in liquid. The Park NX10 SICM Module is an add-on option that integrates with an existing Park NX10 system. 

Park XE7

Park XE7 provides similar AFM capabilities as the Park NX10, but at a more affordable price for a wider number of research labs. Many materials scientists choose Park XE7 to simultaneously satisfy a need for research-grade AFM performance and a limited budget.
