Nano-K Vibration Isolation Platforms

Nano-K™ bench top systems offer the highest level of vibration isolation performance possible for Scanning Probe Microscopes (AFM and STM). Featuring a totally passive 1/2-Hz system, they outperform air systems by 10 to 100 times. The use of superior, leading-edge, negative-stiffness technology results in a cost-effective, compact, lightweight system that is easy to adjust and has no facility requirements. These features make them perfect enabling accessories for high performance vibration sensitive instruments.
