The major hardware components of the equipment are the scanner, with a closed (x-y) feed-back loop which provides optimum positioning accuracy and the nano-scope controller which optionally incorporates a scanning tunneling microscope. The Nanoman V AFM also has an acoustic vibration isolation hood which not only shields the samples from atmospheric contaminants during imaging but is also an essential requirement to control ambient humidity during the local anodic oxidation process. The most important portion of the software components of the equipment is the lithography Nanoman software which guides the tip movement during the lithographic steps.
