The FAST module

The FAST module is an add-on electronics that can upgrade virtually any scanning probe microscope to video rate imaging, allowing to investigate dynamical processes at surfaces with unprecedented time resolution.

The novelty of FAST is that it requires no modification of the existing scanner hardware, and its operation is totally transparent with respect to the existing electronics and acquisition software: you can keep on using your SPM in the way you always did, and push the imaging rate exactly when you need it by seamlessly switching between the fast and traditional imaging mode.
