Easy to use technology enabling multiple AFM/STM capabilities and delivering world class performance.

Fast one-click cantilever alignment – Panoramic Optical View – Multiple scanning on 5×5 mm range

The NEXT atomic force microscope provides motorized sample positioning and integrated high resolution optical microscope positioning, motorized continuous zoom and focusing of the optical microscope. But AFM motorization is more than just motorization. Powerful Nova PX software algorithms remove a gap between optics and AFM providing continuous zoom from huge panoramic optical view down to atomic resolution.
