The Caliber is a versatile and high performance SPM system designed for multifunctional and routine microscopy of surface topology, polymer, biomaterials and semiconductor materials. The compact design and user friendly interface make it a suitable educational tool as well as research activity. Its scanning tip technology allows analysis of large and odd sample sizes on any surfaces. It has low noise operation in closed-loop mode and can provide up to six images of 1024 x 1024 pixel density. The available SPM modes are:

  • Contact Mode
  • Tapping Mode
  • Phase Imaging
  • Lift Mode
  • Force Distance Curves
  • Nanolithography
