nGauge AFM

AFM images on your benchtop in minutes

Produce high-quality topography images down to the nanoscale with the powerful, portable and easy-to-use nGauge Atomic Force Microscope (AFM).

Benefits of our patented MEMS AFM system include:

  • Plug and play: the simplest AFM setup and operation, generate images within 90 seconds in just three clicks
  • Unmatched portability: weighing less than 500 grams, use the nGauge virtually anywhere, without a vibration isolation table
  • Incredible value: our breakthrough technology makes the nGauge 10x more affordable than other AFM systems

An integrated piezoresistive sensor in the nGauge AFM chip allows for a fully automated approach of the tip to the sample in seconds. The laserless system means that there is no laser alignment to perform - saving time during scanning and training.

Integrated, miniature X, Y and Z scanners offer unprecedented low-frequency vibration immunity and resistance to thermal drift. The electrothermal scanners are immune to creep and hysteresis effects.

nGauge AFM probes are mounted onto large printed circuit boards (PCBs) that can even be handled by hand, making exchanging the probes a breeze.

The nGauge AFM is trusted by researchers at universities, government institutes, startups and Fortune 500 companies and used by educators for teaching the next generation of students from high school to graduate school in over fifteen countries.
