Indian Institute of Science (IISC) Bangalore India and Park Systems, a leader in Atomic Force Microscopes (AFM) to open ‘Park Nanoscience Lab’ at Centre for Nano Science and Engineering (CeNSE).

The Nanoscience Lab will be equipped with Park NX20 AFM at the Centre for Nano Science and Engineering (CeNSE) and will hold workshops and symposiums on the latest advancements in nanometrology and offer researchers a chance to experience the latest in AFM technology.

As part of the inauguration, Dr San Joon Cho of Park Systems Corporation, will make an official presentation, declaring the Park NanoScience Lab, a part of national facility where researchers will have access to Park Systems cutting-edge Atomic Force Microscopes with high resolution nanoscale imaging. The event will also include an AFM live demonstration and is open to the public.

“The researchers at CeNSE are to benefit from the AFM, in characterizing nanomaterials and nanodevices. In addition, Park Systems will have the opportunity to showcase the capabilities of its tool to a large number of researchers across the country, though the national network programs anchored at CeNSE,” said Prof Navakant Bhat, CeNSE, IISc Bangalore Science.

He further added, “The partnership with Park Systems and their Atomic Force Microscope technology strengthens our academic and scientific community by bringing an exciting new research tool to a shared access location, supporting the growing demand for nanotechnology here in India.”

The Park Nanoscience Lab will showcase advanced atomic force microscopy systems, demonstrate a wide variety of applications ranging from materials, to chemical and biological to semiconductor and devices, and provide hands on experience, training and service, all the year-round.

“Increasingly, AFM is being selected for nanotechnology research over other metrology techniques due to its non-destructive measurement and sub-nanometer accuracy,” explained Dr. Sang-il Park, Park Systems Chairman and CEO.

“The new Park Nanoscience Lab at Indian Institute is a tremendous step forward for researchers in India who work in the advancing fields of nano science and technology.”
