AFSEM® offers maximum flexibility and intuitive positioning. The 3-axis coarse stage moves the cantilever into or out of the field of view of the SEM and positions the cantilever to an area of interest. The SEM stage moves the sample laterally for both AFSEM® and SEM. Vertically, AFM and sample are moved together, allowing you to safely move the sample up and down without crashing the AFM cantilever.
All cantilevers come pre-mounted on a standard connector that enables a fast tip exchange in less than 2 minutes, therefore greatly reducing the down-time of your system. Because of the self-sensing cantilever technology and fully automated cantilever alignment, the AFSEM® system is ready for operation immediately. The cantilevers are provided by our partner company SCL-Sensor.Tech. Fabrication GmbH.
