Nanonics Ltd. NSOM/SPM-100
|The SPM uses a flat scanner, which allows a free optical path. This fact, in turn allows integration with two optical microscopes (above and beneath).||
|Our setup includes two Zeiss AxioTech Vario microscopes,
mounted head-on and sandwiching the Nanonics flat scanner between them.
The system is also equipped with fluorescence capabilities, i.e. mercury lamp and filter sliders.
|The "sandwich" looks like this:|
|For NSOM capabilities, the system is equipped with an EG&G APD (SPCM-AQ) photon counting module.||Data Sheet|
|Nano-fountain Pen (NFP) uses a hollow capillary drawn in to a sharp tip, with an aperture of ~ 100 nm. The nanopipette thus manufactured is mounted as the probe of the AFM and controlled by it. When the pipette is filled with a solution, it advances up to the tip of the pipette, however only flows out upon contact with a surface. Thus, it is possible to deliver very small amounts of solution in very precise locations.||
