Nanomicroscopy Center

The Aalto University Nanomicroscopy Center (NMC) provides high resolution microscopy equipment to researchers. The center is equally accessible to everyone.

The instruments include the only sub-Ångström transmission electron microscope (TEM) in Finland, a liquid helium cooled cryo-TEM, cryo scanning tunneling microscopes (STM), scanning electron microscopes (SEM), atomic force microcopes (AFM), X-ray scattering and spectroscopy equipment (SAXS/WAXS/XRD/XPS).

The Nanomicroscopy Center is a part of the OtaNano infrastructure comprising Low Temperature Laboratory, Micronova NanoFab, and NMC facilities.
