Iranian Researchers Create AFM Device

Researchers at Pardis Technology Park, east of Tehran, have created an Atomic Force Microscopy device that captures and saves 2,000 images of a process in only two seconds. The ultra high-speed imaging device features an auto save mode that can be used for studying the progress of a procedure on a nano-scale, ISNA reported on Friday. According to the head of the team of researchers, Abbas Shahmoradi, using the high-speed AFM, researchers can document the formation of a crystal or the effects of a certain type of medicine on a virus in a given period of time. "The new technology will hopefully pave the way for making videos of such scientific experiments," Shahmoradi said. Self-proclaimed as Iran's "Silicon Valley," the park was established to accelerate the development of high-tech industries and promote research and development. It aims to commercialize innovations developed by research centers and provides academic institutions and research centers from the private and public sectors the opportunity to cooperate.  Several Iranian companies have set up their R&D departments at the park.
