  • Reaching the physical resolution limit of STM and AFM

    • sensors with optimized physical properties
    • low temperatures
    • tips with defined chemical composition and structure
  • Improve understanding of tip-sample interaction

  • Simplifying STM and AFM operation for

    • applications in difficult environment (UHV, low temperatures)
    • tool to study insulators
  • 1. image, 2. identify, 3. manipulate any atomic species on any surface (crystal & amorphous) in all environments (vacuum, gas, liquid)
