The Olympus FV1200 is equipped with the following:

The Nanowizard 4 combines fast scanning with high resolution at scan sizes up to 100um and is designed to provide mechanical and thermal stability on inverted optical microscopes for long term imaging.

An Everbeing EB-6 high precision probe station is available for DC wafer probing. Four low noise, high precision probes are available along with a microscope and digital camera. The EB-6 was donated to the LCN by Everbeing in January 2017.

The Bruker Dimension FastScan AFM allows imaging rates up to frames/second without sacrificing resolution from subnanometer to 100's of nanometers in height.

The LCN is equipped with two JPK Nanowizard ULTRA Speed AFMs for fast scanning at up to 300Hz line rate in air and liquid at high resolution.

The LCN currently has three Bruker MultiMode 8 AFMs which are equipped with an E scanner or J scanner (with heater) and uses the unique PeakForce Tapping™ technology to provide new information, faster results and greatly improved ease of use.

The MPMS-XL employs SQUID technology for sensitivity down to 10-8 emu over a wide field and temperature range. This system is primarily used for the AC susceptibility (ACMS) option. Many materials display dissipative mechanisms when exposed to an oscillating field.
