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

The Nanoscience Lab will be equipped with Park NX20 AFM and will hold workshops and symposiums on the advancements in nanometrology.

San Joon Cho of Park Systems Corporation, will make an official presentation, declaring the Park NanoScience Lab, a part of a national facility where researchers will have access to Park Systems’ cutting-edge Atomic Force Microscopes. The event will also include an AFM live demonstration that will be open to public.

“The researchers at CeNSE will benefit from the AFM, in characterising 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 through the national network programmes anchored at CeNSE,” said Navakant Bhat, professor, CeNSE, IISc Bangalore.

“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” he added.

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

“The Nanoscience Lab will be a tremendous step forward for researchers in India who work in the advanced field of nano-science and technology.” he added.
