ProteusQ

Scanning NV Magnetometry

Qnami ProteusQ is a complete quantum microscope system developed on HORIBA AFM technology. It is the first scanning NV (nitrogen-vacancy) microscope for the analysis of magnetic materials at the atomic scale. The Qnami ProteusQ system comes with state-of-the-art electronics, software and AFM optical platform. Its flexible design allows for future adjustments and scaling, expansion and capability upgrades. The proprietary Qnami ProteusQ quantum technology provides high precision images for you to see directly the most subtle properties of your samples and the effect of microscopic changes in your design or fabrication process. The Qnami ProteusQ opens a new window on your research and gives you a new level of control to drive innovation in the design, creation and delivery of smart and energy-efficient electronics.
