CANVAS (a system for Controlled Alteration of Nanomaterials in Vacuum down to the Atomic Scale) is built around an aberration-corrected ultra-high vacuum scanning transmission electron microscope, connecting several experimental stations in the same near-ultrahigh-vacuum. It allows preparation and growth of materials in a protective atmosphere (Ar glove box) and in vacuum (thermal and ebeam evaporators), their controlled manipulation (Specs plasma source), atomic force microscopy and mechanical testing (GeTEC AFSEM by Quantum Design), and atomic-resolution microscopy and spectroscopy (Nion UltraSTEM 100). The system is described in this publication.
