Facilities

Microscopy

Equipment includes:

  • 2 UHV Omicron Nanotechnology SPMs (1 STM/AFM, 1 STM/ESCA and 1 STM/SEM)
  • 5 Vecco AFMs (2 explorers, 1 Nanoman and 1 Picoforce)
  • 2 Vecco SNOMs (Aurora II and III)
  • 5 desktop SPM systems
  • Laser scanning confocal microscope

Many of these systems have been adapted for a variety of environments and novel applications, for example the in situ growth of organic and inorganic material and the combination of AFM with highspeed photography (5ns intervals) to study cavitation in fluids.
