NTEGRA Aura is a Scanning Probe Microscope for studies in the conditions of controlled environment and low vacuum.

The Q-factor of the cantilever in vacuum increases, thus gaining the sensitivity, reliability and accuracy of “probe-sample” light forces measurements. At that, the change from atmosphere pressure to 10-2 Torr vacuum provides the tenfold gain of Q-factor. By further vacuum pumping, Q-factor reaches its plateau and changes insignificantly. Thus, NTEGRA Aura presents the optimal “price/quality” ratio: comparing to the high-vacuum devices it needs much less time – only one minute - to get the vacuum that is needed for the tenfold Q-factor increase. At the same time the system is compact and easy to operate and maintain. As the NTEGRA platform product, NTEGRA Aura has built-in closed loop control for all the axes, optical system with 1 µm resolution and ability to work with more than 40 different AFM methods.

Due to the open architecture, the functionality of NTEGRA Aura can be widen essentially: specialized magnetic measurements with external magnetic field (horizontal, up to +/-0.2T; vertical, up to +/-0.02T), high-temperature experiments (heating up to 3000 С with temperature maintaining precision of 0.050 С), etc.
