The AFM in SEM from the nano analytik GmbH is not only used for imaging, it is capable to be employed for metrology as well.

For this purpose, we are offering a compact-AFM system, applicable in any SEM without chamber modification, for micro manipulation and metrology scanning.

The XYZ6X-Stage is a non-magnetic, closed-loop XYZ nanopositioner with a 60μm x 60μm x 20μm range (Position Noise (nm): x,y = 0.4; z = 0.2) of motion and an extremely low out-of-plane motion. It has the high resonant frequency (x,y = 750Hz; z = 2000Hz) and is designed for space-constrained applications that require high-precision positioning. Furthermore, the actuators are offering manipulation capabilities in the range of 1,5 cm in X, Y and Z with a precision of 3 nm.
