SPM-M Kit for Scanning Probe Microscopy

Scanning probe microscopy is an imaging technique typically used for industrial wear testing, semiconductor manufacturing, or academic research applications. While it can yield high-resolution imagery, SPM systems can be rather expensive and take skill to build. Mad City Labs' SPM-M kit has been designed to allow operators to build a tuning fork, Akiyama probe, AFM (atomic force microscope), or a scanning resonant probe microscope to capture high resolution imagery in both commercial and R&D applications.
