The AFM/Optical microscope at LIPHY
The microscope combines an AFM head with an inverted optical microscope. The setup allows for simultaneous visualisation of the AFM’s head and the sample under investigation.
The available optical techniques are : Bright field ; phase contrast ; RICM (Reflection Interference Contrast Microscopy) ; fluorescence.
The setup is mounted on an anti-vibration table top. It is possible to control the sample temperature or perfusion.
The ’"AFM-bio" is part of nanobio facility and is open to academic researchers.
