Integrate Nanoscale Measurements

Surface morphology is an important property for many high-tech surfaces with features as small as a few nanometers and surface roughness below one nanometer. The Nanite is the tool of choice for surface analysis of workpieces of all shapes and sizes. It delivers nanoscale precision measurements and is itself small enough to allow integration into virtually any imaginable environment.

Sample Limitations - None

Quality and process control often necessitates the analysis of larger pieces or components that cannot be divided into smaller segments. Whether dealing with substantial samples or intricate curves, Nanite guarantees accurate measurements without compromising the integrity of your workpiece. With Nanite, you can trust that your samples will remain intact and unaltered throughout the analysis process.

Near Limitless Integration

The compact NaniteAFM (less than 48 x 87 x 61 mm) integrates seamlessly into existing user systems or custom stages designed by Nanosurf's engineers. This flexibility allows researchers to incorporate AFM capabilities into their established workflows, often without significant modifications. Furthermore, the instrument's scripting interface empowers users to integrate AFM control into their existing setups or leverage Nanosurf's expertise for stage design and automation features.

C3000 Control Software

The control software for the Nanite is an intuitive platform made for performing your AFM measurements efficiently and easily. Simply choose the cantilever you are using, and the system automatically performs the frequency sweep prior to approaching the sample. No manual setting of parameters is required. A selection of measuring tools allows you to accurately measure angles and distances directly on the acquired measurement image. 

  • Cantilever calibration by Sader method and frequency sweep
  • Highly configurable graph area with mode-dependent auto-layout: the software automatically shows the relevant graphs and information
  • Easy file handling with comfort features: auto apply naming conventions, Windows Explorer integration, image gallery, bulk renaming.
  • Includes a powerful scripting interface: automate and extend capabilities according to your needs.
  • Compatible with most programming environments (e.g. LabView, Python, MatLab, C++, Java, and more)
  • Spectroscopy wizard: follow easy steps to set up spectroscopy measurements
  • One software UI for all scan heads: no additional learning curve if you use multiple Nanosurf AFM systems
