Centre d'Elaboration de Matériaux et d'Etudes Structurales (CEMES): Dr. Sébastien Gauthier decided to replace old Scala Controllers with Nanonis for two Omicron microscopes, a VT-AFM and a LT-STM with Qplus sensor. Advanced KPFM modes will be investigated thanks to the dual OC4.

Institute for Microstructure Technology, Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe, Germany: Dr. Hendrik Hoelscher replaced the original Nanoscope Controller of the Veeco Multimode microscope to a Nanonis system with Dual OC4. Research applications include bimodal phase imaging and new multifrequency techniques.

University of Central Florida, Orlando, USA: The new Omicron LT-STM equipped with Qplus sensor of Prof. Masahiro Ishigami is controlled by a Nanonis system with the Oscillation Controller (OC4).

Leibniz-Institut für Neue Materialien: For his homebuilt UHV-SPM at room temperature, Prof. Roland Bennewitz chose the Nanonis Controller with Dual OC4. His applications range from contact friction to non-contact atomic resolution imaging and Kelvin probe measurements.

Oak Ridge National Lab, USA: The Nanotransport group led by John Wendelken replaced the controller for the Omicron VT-AFM with a Nanonis system including dual OC4 for advanced KPFM, PFM and multifrequency experiments.

University of Maryland, USA: In the group of Prof Ellen Williams, two new Nanonis Controllers have been installed on a JEOL AFM/STM for Kelvin probe and MFM applications as well as on an Omicron STM1.

Universität Regensburg, Fakultät für Physik: Prof. F. Giessibl now uses 3 Nanonis Controllers for his ATM/STM applications with Qplus sensor. Two of the controllers are used on homebuilt UHV and Low-Temperature microscopes while the last one is connected to a Park UHV-AFM/STM thanks to the dedicated adaptation kit.

Life Phenomena and Measurement Analysis, Kanazawa, Japan: Dr. Takeshi Fukuma installed a Nanonis controller for his homebuilt beam-deflection AFM with which he obtains routine atomic resolution in NC-AFM in liquid. He further uses the Kelvin probe and AtomTracking modules for refined spectroscopy on single atoms.

CEA-Saclay, France: Dr. Jacques Cousty opted for Nanonis to control a new Omicron VT-AFM but with his homebuilt QPlus sensor. He still could re-use his homebuilt high-voltage amplifier and current preamplifiers.

Centre for Nanoscale Materials, Argonne, USA: Dr. Matthias Bode acquired a new Omicron VT-AFM, XA series together with the Nanonis controller with OC4. A second Nanonis controller is used for his home-built UHV-STM.

Université Catholique de Louvain, Belgium: Dr. Benoit Hackens decided for Nanonis since it provides a seamless integration with his home-built ULT-SPM with tuning fork. The coarse and automatic approach is done by overriding the attocube ANC 150.

Yale University, New Haven, USA: Prof. Udo Schwarz combined the Nanonis controller together with a standard Veeco MultiMode microscope. It is used as both a demonstration equipment at the under-graduate level as well as a versatile research tool.

Fritz-Haber-Institute of the Max-Planck-Society, Berlin, Germany: Dr. Markus Heyde is using the Nanonis control system in combination with a custom-built low-temperature, UHV STM/AFM for atomic resolution imaging and site-specific spectroscopy. A tuning fork-based sensor provides the flexibility in selecting between these two scanning probe modes.

UHV Force Microscopy Group of Prof. Ernst Meyer, University of Basel, Switzerland: Nanonis Control System is used for ncAFM at RT with a home-built microscope for studying organic molecules on insulators and advanced Kelvin Probe measurements.

University of Alberta, Canada:  Prof. Wolkow replaced the original JEOL controller with Nanonis for his JSPM 4500A microscope with ncAFM atomic resolution capability.

Oak Ridge National Lab, USA: Thanks to the Veeco adaptation kit, Dr. Sergei Kalinin can now enjoy the Nanonis controller together with his Veeco MultiMode.

Hokkaido University, Japan: The same Nanonis controller is used for a JEOL UHV-AFM 4500 and a home-built AFM with interferometer in the group of Dr. Hirotaka Hosoi.

Institut de Microélectronique et Nanotechnologie, Lille, France. Dr. Thierry Mélin wanted to take full advantage of his Omicron VT-AFM, including advanced dynamic AFM mode with Kelvin probe. Nanonis provides him with the flexibility to design his own experiments.

Laboratoire de Physique de la Matière Vivante, EPFL, Switzerland: For his home-built cryoAFM, Prof. Giovanni Dietler opted for the Nanonis control system since it could easily interface the piezo motor driver developed at the EPFL as well as re-use his existing Nanosurf PLL. The result is a unified and user-friendly interface with precise control and monitoring of all signals.

Seagate Technologies, Pittsburgh, USA: After a first successful installation on an MFM set-up, Prof. Joachim Ahner decided to take advantage of the Omicron Adaptation Kit to integrate a second Nanonis Control System with his new VT-AFM.

Osaka University, Japan: Dr. Masami Kageshima opted for Nanonis to control his home-built AFM. The automatic approach is performed by remote-control of the attocube ANC 150.

Institute of Solid State Physics, University of Tokyo, Japan: Prof. Yukio Hasegawa uses the integrated Nanonis SPM control system and Oscillation Controller for a Unisoku LT-SPM.

Research Center for Advanced Science & Technology: Dr. Hiroharu Tamaru uses a Nanonis SPM Control System and Oscillation Controller together with a room temperature JEOL microscope.

Seagate Technologies, Pittsburgh, USA: Prof. Joachim Ahner uses a Magnetic Force Microscope (MFM) developed at the University of Basel with a Nanonis Control System for the investigation of next generation hard disks.

Nanophysics Group, ETH Zurich, Switzerland: System for the operation of a tuning fork-based SPM in a dilution refrigerator in the group of Prof. Klaus Ensslin.
