The Dimension Icon AFM is reserved for advanced AFM-based techniques, particularly for nanomechanical and nanoelectrical measurements. Liquid samples are not allowed on the Icon. For general topographical measurement, please use the Multimode AFM.
To become a user of the Icon, you are required submit a short proposal describing why you need the Dimension Icon and what experiments you will do that can not be done on Multimode AFM. It is helpful to discuss your application with the GLAs first. Proposals should be submitted to the Director of the MMRC, Bruce Brunschwig.
