AA3000 Scanning Probe Microscope

Inquiry and Sales: or Online Request


AA3000 Scanning Probe Microscope is a very popular model. This unit is tailored towards research and industry applications, where the user can perform rapid and simple analysis. The detector is built directly into the base, eliminating the chance of damaging it through handling. AA3000 Scanning Probe Microscope is capable of performing contact mode, tapping mode, lateral force microscopy and scanning tunneling microscopy. The standard unit is equipped to view sample areas up to 10 micron by 10 micron. The system can be customized to measure larger areas. With a Digital Signal Processor (DSP) TMS320C642 inside the systems, AA3000 can handle complicated multi-functional tasks efficiently. A real-time operating system of SPM/DNA is embedded in AA3000 SPM system.
