ARgyle™

Built-in Advanced 3D Rendering and Data Analysis Capabilities

The Asylum AFM system software is based in IGOR Pro, a powerful data and acquisition analysis program that allows users to customize the interface. Now, generating, displaying and visualizing your AFM images – and in real time – has never been more powerful.

ARgyle™ – 3D Image Viewing
ARgyle, a built-in software enhancement to the system software, allows many advanced 3D viewing capabilities all while scanning samples in real time, and for offline analysis:

  • Advanced OpenGL® rendering technology provides extensive capabilities utilizing the latest advances made by video card manufacturers.
  • Multiple images and channels of a single scan such as phase, amplitude, topography, MFM, conductivity may be opened and viewed simultaneously, or overlaid on a primary channel for signal correlation (see the image to the right).
  • Independent scaling of each axis allows adjustment of aspect ratios to best represent your data. Now view your data with a 1:1 aspect ratio to visually compare height structures with scan size.
  • Enhanced lighting effects provide shadowing on surfaces as the light is rotated. Specular highlighting creates reflection that enhances the features of surface roughness.
  • Many color tables, along with a color table editor, provide optimal data rendering for stunning presentations.
  • Files may be exported to the clipboard or saved as JPEG, PNG, BMP, TIFF, or other files.

Extended Head

The unique head design allows a scan range of 40µm in Z for samples with higher features, and in particular, for bioscience applications including living cells and plant imaging. The MFP-3D Extended Head utilizes the same Nanopositioning System sensors found in the standard head for unprecedented precision and accuracy.
