Among the most famous educational systems are the following: FemtoScan (Advanced technologies center, Russia), EasyScan 2 (NanoSurf, Switzerland), Nanoeducator II (NT-MDT, Russia) etc. Of course, every device has own advantages and disadvantages.

FemtoScan created for training. Strict mechanics was created for avoiding damage from the students.

Open source community-based tools for learning Moodle is very convinient for this purpose. It helps to solve a lot of problems: • Administration • Data saving • Planning etc

High-quality electronics makes it possible to measure with high accuracy 1nm by more than 50 modes.
