Beetle Family Overview

Based on the field-proven “Johnny Walker” Beetle™ design, RHK’s VT Beetle is the most mechanically and thermally stable of the many variable temperature SPM designs on the market today.  

Wide VT operation from 25 K (LHe) to 1500 K is coupled with easily aligned AFM enabling a full range of techniques from advanced NC-AFM to true quantitative friction force measurements.  The user can easily switch between STM and AFM in UHV, and exchange and store samples, tips, and probes in UHV.

The Beetle is available in a variety of configurations from kits for atmospheric operation to complete variable temperature systems. Specialized Beetle systems from RHK provide Variable Magnetic Fields, specialized Optical access for many optical beam studies, and SEM-guided probe positioning.  The Beetle can be integrated with RHK’s prep-analysis chambers for a multi-technique nanotech research platform whose performance and capabilities are unmatched.
