Mad City Labs

The Mad City Labs SPM-M Kit combines the MadPLL® instrument package with Mad City Labs high resolution nanopositioning systems to form a high performance, closed loop, scanning resonant probe microscope. The seamless integration of hardware combined with the built-in automated control of MadPLL® means that you can concentrate on getting results, not tweaking parameters. Applications for the SPM-M Kit include nanoscale characterization and nanoscale fabrication applications such as optical antennas, nano-optics, semiconductors, data storage, and more. The SPM-M Kit is ideal for research and teaching laboratories offering high performance, versatility, simplicity and excellent value.

MadPLL® is a powerful instrument package that allows the user to create an inexpensive, high resolution resonant scanning probe microscope using Mad City Labs nanopositioning systems.

An automated, high resolution, resonant probe AFM can be assembled in approximately 30 minutes using Mad City Labs closed loop nanopositioning systems and the MadPLL® instrument package.
