Efficient instrumentation is a carefull mix of Technology, Utilization, and Economical aspects.
The Atomscope has an integrated focusable optical microscope with 500nm resolution with Darkfield and Brightfield illumination.
The Atomscope is standard equipped with a 30 MHz cantilever pick up system and a 30 x 30 x7 um scanner with subatomic resolution.
The Atomscope head can be slided up and secured in a one hand movement providing plenty access to change the cantilever holder and sample disk.
The atomScope is open for hardware extensions of any kind by means of the open hardware interface allowing it to interact with external equipment.
Software for the atomScope can directly be programmed into the Microsoft Windows environment using the C# programming language.
A series of short tutorials describe how to familiarize quickly with atomScope programming and how to create software libraries others can use.
