Large-Scale Acoustic Enclosure Enables AFM/SPM Users to Expand Their Capabilities

(Nanowerk News) After years of development, the largest high-performance acoustic enclosure has been released: The Crypt.
Herzan LLC developed The Crypt to provide a large working area and huge volume without sacrificing the high level of noise reduction that Herzan enclosures are known for. Now the benefit of a quiet environment will be extended to researchers using scanning probe microscopy / atomic force microscopy with large instrumentation.

As researchers have realized the wide range of applications of SPM / AFM, they have begun incorporating traditional AFMs with inverted optical and confocal microscopes, lasers and optical equipment, and an array of other accessories. This trend has increased researchers' need for working area without removing their need for a low noise environment in which to carry out their sensitive measurements.
Herzan developed The Crypt with these researchers in mind. The Crypt offers eight square feet of working area and an internal volume of 25.4 cubic feet. It also offers a number of key usability features like large doors that open over 180 degrees, openable window doors for easy access, and cable management options that prevent parasitic noise.
