State of the art AFM measurement system. Capable of measuring samples up to 300mm wafer size.


Atomic Force Microscope

The NX20 300mm provides recipe-automated AFM measurement for numerous applications providing advanced measurements and analysis of samples at the nanoscale. With the ability to measure roughness, height and depth, perform defect reviews, property characterization, and nanomechanical property imaging, the AFM is ideally suited to a wide range of tasks performed by FA, QA, and QC engineers that work with large samples.
