The Cypher Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) is made by Asylum Research and is capable of many types of nano-scale measurements. Capabilities and manuals will soon be downloadable.

Keith Jone’s notes about cantilevers (2012):
 Application  Cantilever Notes 
 Polymers UHF arrows Bandwidth of ~10kHz, so you can scan pretty fast.
 Harder materials AC55 Same as above
 Atomic resolution UHF arrows with Au backside coating
 Soft bio in fluid AC40s (a.k.a. biolever 2)
