Nanotechnology is our field. Precision is our tradition.

Innovation is our key instrument.

That's why we are located in Switzerland, one of the most powerful
and innovative areas in Europe.
Using our knowledge as well as our high precision AFM Probes, our clients are able to get the best results they need for atomic force microscopy (AFM).

Since the beginning of the 20th Century Switzerland has been a cradle of great Innovations in Precision Mechanics, and today in Micro- and Nanotechnology. Many famous Swiss clock makers started their successful work in Neuchâtel and the atomic force microscopy (AFM) was invented not far from here.

In this perfect infrastructural surrounding NanoWorld AG is located next to
Microcity (part of EPFL) and the CSEM (Swiss Center of Electronics
and Microtechnology).

With Cleanrooms and Offices close together we have the best environment to innovate and produce novel scanning probes with maximum efficiency.
