Product Features

  • New Shear Force head design offers:
        - 100x100x10 um scan range
       - High scanning llinearity owing to integrated  
    position sensors
        - Easy-to use Reflection mode realization
  • The integrating of the inverted microscope objective into the central base becouse of high mechanical rigidity provides stability of the system making quality images and long-term experiments possible.
  • Reflection and Transmission modes are available.
