SPS-CREATEC GmbH is a subsidary of Createc Fischer & Co. GmbH. It was established in 2003 to develop, build and service scanning probe microscopes. The company managed by Albrecht Fischer and Dr. Sven Zöphel has its offices in the new CreaTec Building in Erligheim (near Stuttgart), Germany.
Our LT-STM was developed with Dr. Gerhard Meyer during the PhD thesis of Sven Zöphel at the FU Berlin in the group of Prof. K.-H. Rieder. Following the demand of our customers we are continuously developing this instrument. It is very well known for it's outstanding stability and performance in the scientific community.
The LT-STM is specially designed for working at atomic scale at low temperature (i.e. to perform atomic / molecular manipulation or local spectroscopy). The STM has a modified Besocke beetle design which ensures its high stability (dz<1pm) and only a small drift.
