Scanning Probe Microscope
A revolutionary layout-free user interface (GUI) is used that provides borderless support for operations ranging from online observation to offline analysis. This means the SPM can be operated from observation to determining observation position and obtaining observation results without confusion.
From startup to observation and analysis, the SPM can be operated using only mouse-clicks, without requiring any complicated settings
Select the observation mode in the [Manager] window.
Follow the steps indicated in the guidance window to easily complete setup.
(3) Start Observation
Clicking the [Observation Start] button performs all operations automatically, from approach to observation.
Image data obtained in the past can be viewed without switching offline.
(5) Offline Analysis
A wide selection of functions for displaying, processing, and analyzing images are available for expressing observation results more attractively and quantitatively.
(1) Observation Window
Up to 8 images can be displayed simultaneously. This means the surface shape and physical properties can be compared in multiple images, while scanning.
The Navigator clearly shows what area is being observed. Since previously observed images can be displayed, this enables obtaining an overall view of the entire sample.
(3) Online Profile
Cross-section profiles can be measured in the online window while observing samples.
(4) Image History
Past image data can be displayed next to current observation images for comparison.
(5) Force Mapping
A force curve can be measured for each point in observed image data to acquire a distribution of sample mechanical properties or adhesion force (special order).
(6) Vector Scanning
The scanning direction, force between the probe and sample, or the applied voltage can be programmed to allow scanning according to a program (special order).
