About Us

Founded in 1998, NanoMagnetics Instruments (NMI) has gradually evolved into one of the world’s leading manufacturers of Scanning Probe Microscopes (SPMs) and measurement systems for a variety of fields of science and technology. A dedicated team of innovative scientists and engineers empower us to design, build and supply a range of scientific equipment from compact, easy to use instrumentation to state of-the-art systems for customers in research, manufacturing and education establishments worldwide.

With a team of more than 60 personnel, all our system designing, development, manufacturing, assembly, integration and testing are done in-house. Whether it’s a simple standard off-the shelf unit or a complex customised solution, at NMI, we strive to provide cost-effective solutions to satisfy our customers’ requirements.

Our product portfolio is mainly composed of:

1- Ambient Scanning Probe Microscopes (SPMs)

This microscope family is used to measure various surface properties of materials and widely used in science and technology applications. They are complementary to the traditional optical and electron microscopes and have extensive applications beyond simple surface topography measurements. Properties like carrier density, charge distribution, binding energy, electrochemical properties, surface magnetic field profile, hardness and spectroscopic measurements from simple IV to force distance and nano mechanical properties can be studied with these microscopes. It is also possible to inspect samples under various atmospheric conditions, especially needed for biological applications. Our products classified in this category are ezAFM, ezSTM, hpAFM, hsAFM and RT-SHPM.

2- Low Temperature Scanning Probe Microscopes SPMs

Similar to above mentioned properties, these microscopes are engineered to work under extremely low temperatures (˂10mK) and high magnetic fields (˃20T). We customize our products to fit in to our customers` existing cryostats or dilution fridges. Turnkey solutions are also available. They are mostly used for magnetic or superconducting material studies. Our products in this category are LT- AFM/MFM, LT-SHPM, mK-AFM/MFM and mK-SHPM.

3- Controller & Standalone Electronics

The electronic control and signal processing requirements possessed by our products, gave us the distinctive capability of analog and digital design. The controllers we use with our systems and emerged components can be used independently for different purposes. USB PLL, USB Interferometer, Gaussmeter and SPM Controllers belong to this product group.

4- Measurement, Characterization & Manipulation Systems

These group of products are design for electric transport and magnetic properties measurements. Measurements like, Hall Effect, Van der Pauw, 2-4 contact resistivity, angle dependent resistivity, and susceptibility etc. can be performed. Various units allows the user to compose the proper measurement setup for exact needs. Each unit is also configurable internally. Systems have their own dedicated automation software written in Labview. Our products in this group are; Hall Effect Measurement System (HEMS) with electromagnet, table top HEMS unit (ezHEMS), 4 Point IV Measurement Setup, Variable Sample Magnetometer (VSM), Vertical (Swedish) Sample Rotator, Horizontal Sample Rotator, AC Sussceptometer

5- Custom Manufactured Systems & Parts

The know-how on electro-mechanical systems, low temperature system, ultra-high vacuum systems, measurement and manipulation, and probe microscopy give us the background to design, simulate, manufacture and integrate for any special requirements. From a simple part to a complex system we will be at your service.
