Nanonis Programming Interface - The Power of Lego Blocks


Competitive advantage in research is often based on the modification of an instrument that allows the researcher to perform experiments in a way nobody else has done before. Just using an instrument that everybody else already has is not enough. This is where our Programming Interface steps in - to give you the building blocks to design your own experiment and to automate repetitive tasks and increase efficiency.
The Programming Interface offers more functions and a simpler approach to programming for inexperienced users than the standard TCP interface. It also contains ready-made examples which can be used as is or as a starting point for custom routines.
  • Simple to learn - all functions available through the LabVIEW function palette
  • Fully integrated - directly develop in the LabVIEW programming environment
  • Unlimited in scope - not just a set of predefined commands
Old systems require TTL handshakes and difficult to debug trigger electronics to communicate with external equipment - now you can directly talk to the hardware, read back full data sets from other instruments and integrate them directly with the SPM control system. Requires LabVIEW 8.2 or higher.

Nanonis SO5/TSO 16-channel signal source released

The SO5 and TSO are 16-channel precision, low-noise analog output add on modules for the Nanonis SPM Control System and the Nanonis Tramea quantum transport measurement system. Nanonis Tramea users can profit from up to 48 temperature-stabilized 20-bit signal sources able to control even the most complex nanostructures. More information about the new instrument can be found here

New application note library online

Announcing our two new application notes galleries to highlight results from our SPM control system as well as the new Nanonis Tramea QTMS.
