Demonstration of closed loop velocity control for fast imaging techniques using high-speed AFM

To address the requirement for high-speed, high-resolution scanning and nanopositioning Queensgate Instruments has developed velocity control for their nanopositioning stages. This has been applied to an XY stage and its potential for use in a high-speed atomic force microscope has been assessed using the NPL Metrological High-Speed AFM platform.

AFM Application

Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) or Scanning Force Microscopy (SFM)

Read about how Queensgate achieve resolutions of fractions of a nanometer for the AFM and SFM market.

Synchrotrons and Beamlines Application

Synchrotron solutions

Queensgate Instruments have decades of experience providing nano positioning solutions for use in beamline science.

Nano positioning controller application

Software and controller integration

In this example application you can see how software has been installed into the controller, which drives the stage to deliver a solution.
