Nanotechnology34www.lotoriel.co.ukAtomic Force MicroscopyThe New NX10 - The World's Most Accurate AFMData accuracy is of paramount importance to nanotechnology researchers as the credibility of their research depends upon accurate results. The NX10, the world's most accurate AFM, is the "agship AFM of Park Systems' new product line. The NX10 brings unparalleled imaging accuracy, scan speeds, and tip life to the next generation of researchers, all at an affordable price. The NX10 is the world's premium research-grade True Non-Contact AFM, featuring industry-leading Z-servo speed, XYZ scanner linearity, closed-loop detector noise, and minimized thermal drift. As Park Systems' most user-friendly AFM, the NX10 makes AFM convenient and intuitive for new and experienced users alike.The XY scanner consisting of symmetrical 2-dimensional "exure and high-force piezoelectric stacks provides high orthogonal movement of minimal out-of-plane motion as well as high responsiveness essential for precise sample scanning in the nanometer scale. An XY scanner with optional scan size is available and has up to 100 ?m wide scan range.????????Flexure Guided XY Scanner????????Minimal Thermal Drift????????High Speed Z Scanner????????High Power Motorised Optics????????Low Noise Position Sensors????????Pre-aligned Tip Holder????????Fast Tip Approach????????SLD Head????????Motorised XY Sample Stage????????Auto Head Engage????????Mapping Automation????????Low Noise Floor????????Optical Access to CantileverKey Features of the NX10Sample Topography Measured by Low Noise Z DetectorZ detector noice is low enough to replace the applied voltage to the Z scanner as the Topography signal. The Z detector signal provides correct scanner positions during high speed scans, resulting in True Sample TopographyTM free of piezo creep.Industry Leading, Fast Z-Servo SpeedZ-scanner bandwidth of more than 9 kHz, or Z-servo speed of more than 62 mm/sec tip velocityOptimized Z servo speed with minimal Z scan mass (PSPD and tip)Keeps the probe within the narrow range of the attractive forceFast DSP servo control without time delayIndustry Leading, Z Scan LinearityIn Park Systems' Crosstalk Elimincation, the "exure-guided Z scanner is decoupled from the X and Y scan motion. Hence, the Z scan motion can be kept in a precise straight line. The Z scan linearity of the "exure guided scanner is less than 0.015%, enabling an accurate and precise angle measurement in the nanoscale.
