The MCL-NSOM is a fully operational near-field scanning optical microscope manufactured on Mad City Labs’ versatile RM21™ inverted optical microscope. This instrument is designed to allow users to convert between NSOM, SPM, and fluorescence optical microscopy techniques.
Building on the resonant probe SPM, the MCL-NSOM incorporates common elements such as the MadPLL® phase lock loop controller, and utilizes precision motion control with six axes of motorized positioning and three axes of closed loop nanopositioning. The microscope features a 635 nm laser excitation source, fiber launch, an oil immersion objective lens, a CMOS alignment camera, and an avalanche photodiode detector. It supports illumination, collection, illumination and collection, reflection, and reflection collection modes, while operating in aperture mode with shear force feedback.
