The AppLab Service

You want to get on with your research but don’t have access to a lab with a NV scanning ProteusQ microscope? Don’t worry, you can do it with us. You can come to our AppLab where one of our experts will do the measurements with you, or you can use our service, ship your samples and we take care of your measurements.

The ProteusQ is the first scanning NV (nitrogen-vacancy) microscope for the analysis of magnetic materials at the atomic scale. It’s a new level of precision that enables you to see directly the most subtle properties of your samples and the effect of microscopic changes in your design or fabrication process.

We know how precision at the smallest scale can help you to discover new possibilities in your research and work. 

Interested? This is how it works.

Step 1Define your program
Step 2Ship or bring your samples
Step 3Get your data


Get in touch with us to define your individual measurement program. From one day to one week or whatever you’ll need.


Visit us in our AppLab or simply ship in your samples. We’ll do the measurements for you.


Get your data in a daily report. If necessary, we can simply adjust your program to fit your needs. 

Science is experiencing a quantum revolution with astonishing potential for innovation. We’re proud to be part of this and we’re always happy to support you in driving this evolution. 


How it can be used

Probing Weak Magnetic Defects in Nanowires with Scanning NV Magnetometry

/ /

Scanning NV Magnetometry unlocks the characterization of nanoscopic weak magnetic inhomogeneities in nanowires. Such weak non uniformities at very small scales have never observed before by standard characterization tools.

Characterization of room-temperature in-plane magnetization in thin flakes of CrTe2 with a single spin magnetometer

/ /

Using Qnami QuantileverMX probes, the team led by Vincent Jacques identifies the only “van der Waals” material known to date where magnetic order occurs in few atomic layers even at room temperature 

Spatial Resolution in Scanning NV Magnetometry – Technical Note

/ / / /

This technical note explains how spatial resolution is defined in Scanning NV Magnetometry. For a given distance d between the NV center and the scanned surface, the best achievable lateral spatial resolution is 0.86 d.

This is what you need?
