25 years of Nanosurf

Nanosurf has a special birthday this year - and we would like to celebrate it with you!

In June 4th 1997, the three founders decided SPM instruments are too cumbersome to use, and they went out and built the first STM that could fit comfortably on a coffee table - with room for a couple of cups of espresso to spare.

Today, in 2022 Nanosurf is a different company. While we haven't forgotten our roots, we have come a long way since this first technology innovation. We are no longer a startup but one of the major players in SPM with a solid product portfolio. Beyond educational AFMs we have the clear leadership in customized instruments that satisfy the demanding needs in research and industry applications.
