Photonic Probe Station for variable temperature

attocube’s new Photonic Probe Station combines two optical fiber probes & a free beam Confocal Microscope (attoCFM I), and hence provides an ultra-stable, extremely compact and easy to use table top setup for nanophotonic device characterization such as Photonic Integrated Circuits (PIC). Moreover, it can be combined with attocube’s state of the art attoDRY700 table top cryostat for convenient characterization of photonic nanostructures in a temperature range from 3K up to 300K.

SGM experiments on Quantum Hall Effect Structures
at 300mK and 8T

Nicola Paradiso, Stefan Heun, and co-workers measured the fractional quantum Hall effect in quantum point contacts using an attoAFM III in an attoLIQUID3000 at very low temperature (300 mK) and high magnetic field (~8 T). These ground-breaking Scanning Gate Microscopy experiments pave the way to a better understanding of the role of fractional phases in the field of coherent quantum transport!

A perfect match: attocube & Neaspec

attocube systems took over the majority share in Neaspec GmbH in mid-February. Neaspec - a company based in Martinsried close to Munich - specializes in developing scanning near-field optical microscopes (SNOM). These microscopes break the resolution limit of conventional existing optical microscopes and therefore open up completely new applications for nanoanalytical characterization.
