AFM-in-SEM key values


Complex and correlative sample analysis

Unique technology of multidimensional correlative imaging enables simultaneous acquisition of data from SEM and AFM, and their seamless correlation into 3D images.


In-situ conditions

All measurements are done at the same time, in the same place and under the same conditions, preventing the need of sample transfer and risk of contamination during analyses.


Precise localization of the region of interest

Extremly precise and time saving approach using SEM to localize and navigate the AFM to the region of interest.

We have greatly appreciated every aspect of our collaboration with NenoVision. The unique ability to utilize both SEM and AFM at the same time allowed to directly correlate the size and mechanical properties of silk nanowires.

We implement the AFM in SEM technology in the field of low dimensional materials research. The correlative AFM in SEM microscopy embodied in LiteScope opens up a brand new dimension of knowledge about these materialsproperties and their optimization.

Marco Cassani, Ph.D.

The extraordinary level of expertise and scientific knowledge that I found in NenoVision is fundamental for my project and the high quality of the imaging obtained with LiteScope has produced outstanding results so far. I hope to keep continuing my collaboration with NenoVision also in the future.

RNDr. Antonín Fejfar, CSc.

LiteScope is a true extension of horizons in the field of material engineering and semiconductors. I appreciate the innovative approach of its creators who were not afraid to look at AFM technology from a different perspective. I am honored that our institute has a serial number 01.

prof. RNDr. Tomáš Šikola, CSc.

The unique idea of students has been transformed into a world patent LiteScope that has the chance to disturb the waters of nanoscience. It is pleasing to use the knowledge gained through this invention in international projects.
