Why LiteScope?

Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM) are the two most used techniques for sample analysis at the nanoscaleThe combination of complementary AFM in SEM enhances the capabilities of both techniques. It allows you to get precise in-time image correlation without limiting the imaging options of either system.

It opens up completely new possibilities for:

AFM-in-SEM measurement is time-efficient, precise and it provides complex sample analysis while preventing sensitive samples from surface contamination and oxidation.
