miBot set of nanomanipulators

Trade name
miBot Nanomanipulators
Technical description

The system of two miBot-type nanomanipulators by IMINa, compatible with the scanning electron-ion microscope VERSA 3D. This system allows for in-situ resistance measurements during the nanostructuring process and manipulation of individual sub-micron objects. Each nanomanipulator has 3 axes along which it can move with precision to single nanometers and the ability to rotate. The radius of the measurement probe ranges from 100 to 500 nm, enabling the passage of currents with an intensity of 100 mA. External measurement electronics, such as the Keithley 2400 device, are used for resistance measurements.
