Nanotec Electronica

Nanotec Electronica is one of the leading companies in the Nanotechnology Industry. In only ten years Nanotec Electronica has established itself as one of the strongest companies that design, manufacture and supply Scanning Probe Microscopes (SPM). Our highly qualified team uses cutting-edge technology in order to provide a cost-effective tool to gain access to the nanometer scale for both scientific and industrial communities. With its headquarters based in Spain and distributors located around the world, Nanotec ensures global presence and guarantees total customer satisfaction.

Nanotec´s Cervantes FullMode Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) in its several configurations allows not only imaging samples with atomic precision but also the study of magnetic, electronic and mechanical properties at the nanoscale, making it a powerful tool for physicists, chemists, biologists and engineers willing to characterize their samples at the nanometer scale. Its robust design provides strong mechanical stability to ensure high imaging resolution, and its semi-automated and open design allows scientists to exploit the capability of SPM to its maximum for both research and academic purposes.

Nanotec Electronica also provides Dulcinea Control Systems, with an open and modular design that facilitates interfacing with any other standard AFM/SNOM/STM system available in the market. Highly versatile, it allows different modes of operation from Contact Mode to Frequency Modulation Mode and lithography ensuring a reliable and accurate performance of all SPM systems.

Nanotec has also developed and freely distributes SPM software WSxM. Its user-friendly interface ensures easy operation of SPM microscopes and data processing. WSxM is available for its free download at www.nanotec.es.
