Instead of piezoelectric materials that require high voltages and are vulnerable to creep, the easyScan 2 AFM uses a patented electromagnetic scanner that boasts an XY-Linearity Mean Error of less than 0.6% with low noise and low power consumption. This and similar smart design features allow a reduction in cost without a loss of precision performance. The Basic AFM Package makes professional high resolution surface measurements available to everyone.
Simple Cantilever Replacement
Changing the cantilever takes three easy steps: cover the scanner with the DropStop, lift the cantilever holder, and replace the cantilever. When the cantilever holder is released and the DropStop removed, the Probe Status LED stops flashing and confirms the AFM is ready for measuring.
Professional surface measurements require professional equipment. Starting with our Basic AFM Package we use only top quality cantilevers fitted with the alignment chip mounting system pioneered by NanoWorld. We recommend NanoWorld and NANOSENSORS cantilevers for best results and for meaningful comparison of all your measurements.
The two view lenses built into the easyScan AFM offer a top view that shows where on the sample the cantilever is positioned and a side view that shows the probe-sample distance. Positioning the sample for measurement thus becomes simple and intuitive.
