The objective of this network is to advance and to develop truly novel scanning probe tools that will allow to investigate and manipulate materials properties on a nanometer scale.This includes the development of a new generation of probes and prob ing concepts, nanostructuring, development of essential spectroscopic methods likespin-polarized tunneling, optical techniques on a nanometer scale as well as the development of new smart nanoprobes like video scanning probe microscopy.This will re quire considerable developments both in experimental approaches and techniques, materials and theoretical understanding. To this end the consortium will combine the existing European expertise in this field, combining research laboratories and comme rcial enterprises and acting as a center of knowledge.
