Inspection Optics

in-situ tip & sample visualization (optional)


Performing cryogenic measurements implies that the sample cannot be accessed during the measurement, and also, that usually there is no clear line of sight to the sample inside the cryostat. This sometimes adds to the difficulty in low temperature SPM. With our inspection optics, you can see your AFM tip and the sample even when cold, and e.g. check roughly where you are on your sample, and what is currently going on.

The inspection optics upgrade contains:

  • In-situ-LED illumination
  • In-situ mirror and optics
  • room temperature CCD with imaging software
  • magnification: 1x

optional for: attoAFM I, attoAFM III, attoSHPM
