Nanosurf Releases the NaioSTM

(Nanowerk News) Nanosurf announces the availability of the NaioSTM, Nanosurf's All-in-One STM for nanoeducation. The new scanning tunneling microscope integrates scan head, controller and vibration isolation platform into one compact instrument, making it ideal for classroom experiments and demonstrations.
The NaioSTM is the successor to the well-known Easyscan 2 STM and brings together scan head and controller in a single instrument for even greater ease of installation, use, and transportability. The whole setup is very robust against vibrations and can be used in standard classroom situations. With its integrated controller, it hardly takes up any workbench space!
