INSTRUMENTATION:
Our instrumentation is based on an Atomic Force Microscope coupled to wavelength tunable lasers and vacuum chambers. Dedicated preparation chambers are specially designed for tip, cantilever and sample preparation. The chamber includes an ion bombardment gun, a variable temperature sample holder (90K – 1600K), and various tools for atom, molecule and nanoparticle deposition. Samples and probes can be transferred into microscope without exposure to atmospheric conditions. Measurements as a function of wavelength (350 – 900 nm) optical power, temperature, magnetic/electric fields, and a large variety of gas partial pressures are possible.

The operation mode can be interchanged between: PiFM-Vis imaging/spectroscopy, FFM imaging, EFS spectroscopy, PFM piezo-response force microscopy, IFS spectroscopy, AFS adhesion spectroscopy, MFM and STM imaging.  The equipment is also used for manipulation of single nanoobjects on surfaces and for nanoscale lithography. A high magnetic field gradient system consisting in a magnetic circuitry assembled on sample holders is available.
