Atomic Force Microscope designed for easy integration into the Scanning Electron Microscopes. The combination of complementary AFM and SEM techniques enables you to use the advantages of both commonly used microscopy techniques.
Complex, yet time-efficient analysis and characterization of structures at the nanoscale is possible only by advanced correlative imaging and automation across various instruments. The AFM-in-SEM approach merges Atomic Force Microscopy and Scanning Electron Microscopy into one tool that combines the capabilities of both techniques. Additionally, NenoVision‘s cutting-edge correlative imaging of AFM and SEM data sets the product apart from the competition, making NenoVision’s unique Atomic Force Microscope, LiteScope™, the most advanced AFM in SEM on the market.
Get the best of both techniques at the same time
Scanning electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy are the two most used, and, in fact, complementary techniques, for sample analysis in the (sub)nanometer range. The integration of AFM into SEM merges the strengths of both techniques, resulting in extremely time-efficient workflow and enables complex sample analysis that was difficult or readily impossible by conventional, separate AFM and SEM instrumentation:
Fast and precise – AFM navigation to the region of interest by SEM
Two in one – complex sample characterization and advanced data correlation
In-situ conditions - crucial for sensitive samples and novel analyses
Atomic Force Microscopy with Scanning Electron Microscopy
LiteScope incorporates a unique imaging technique called Correlative Probe and Electron Microscopy, shortly CPEM, enabling simultaneous acquisition of AFM and SEM data. LiteScope and the CPEM technology allow sample analysis in a way that was difficult or impossible by the two imaging technologies separately.
Together they bring new possibilities for advanced correlative imaging in a variety of scientific and industrial fields such as Material Sciences, Nanostructures, Semiconductors or Solar cells industry, Life sciences, and many more, defining their own category of correlative microscopy.
