Scanning Probe Microscope SmartSPM 1000

About the equipment

The SmartSPM 1000 Scanning Probe Microscope is the first 100% automated system that offers its cutting-edge technology of ultra-fast, metrological and high resolution measurements for the most advanced materials research at the nano scale in all AFM and STM modes. With the SmartSPM zooming in from large up to 100 µm overview scans down to atomic resolution has become a reality. SmartSPM system allows measurements in air conditions, in controlled atmosphere and or in liquids. The SPM computer software implements all the basic techniques of atomic force microscopy (AFM), scanning tunneling microscopy (STM), as well as a wide range of additional and special techniques. Its design has been specially developed to be capable of being seamlessly integrated with NSOM, Raman and TERS/SERS techniques.
