Training Scanning Probe Microscope for Mac OS (Apple) Users
(Nanowerk News) Early in February ‘08 NT-MDT company promoted a training SPM NanoEducator compatible with Apple's operating system Mac OS. NT-MDT is the first company that introduced the world of SPM nanoinvestigations to Mac OS users.
Single-step method settings, facile replacement of samples and user-friendly interface are the essential adjectives of a device for the research and educational process which have been replenished with Mac OS compatibility feature now.
Moreover, optical and mechanical parts of the device have been developed considerably. One can choose the most interesting regions to investigate by means of a video camera which allows to “stroll over the surface”. Details of the video picture can be emphasized in different ways owing to changeable backlight angle. Furthermore, focusing control of the video camera permits to avoid the probe damage by following the approach process more thoroughly.
NT-MDT company supplies multifunctional nanolaboratories NTEGRA and sophisticated nanotechnological facilities NanoFab to the market but focuses its attention on the development of instrumental basis for the nanoeducation now as before. Together with upgrade of the NanoEducator device its capabilities are available for the staunch supporters of Macintosh platform.
