Veeco Introduces New ``Low-Cost, High-Value'' Scanning Probe Microscope
According to Jeannine Sargent, Executive Vice President, Veeco Metrology & Instrumentation, "Our new Caliber "mini-SPM" provides a highly affordable, compact and flexible research solution for materials, surface sciences, and polymer studies. Furthermore, the Caliber's attractive price point will make Veeco's industry leading SPM technology attainable to a broader group of industrial researchers and makes an excellent entry-point SPM for new users in an educational setting or in emerging high-tech growth markets such as China and India."
“With closed-loop scanning and the ability to scan up to 90um on almost any surface, the Caliber offers big SPM functionality in a tiny footprint”
"With closed-loop scanning and the ability to scan up to 90um on almost any surface, the Caliber offers big SPM functionality in a tiny footprint," added David Rossi, Vice President of Marketing for Veeco's Instrumentation products. "Researchers and industrial manufacturers with more limited funding can now benefit from Veeco's cutting-edge SPM technology that has revolutionized the nanosciences. Our beta customers have reactive positively to the new Caliber, commenting that its impressive performance and small footprint allow portability which is important in a multi-user research lab."
The Caliber's open-platform, closed-loop design allows researchers to customize hardware and optimize electronics for excellent application versatility. The Caliber's streamlined operational convenience facilitates a broad array of stand-alone experiments. Other features include real-time software with line-by line analysis, oscilloscope, FFT, and leveling functions.
