A modular Scanning Tunneling Microscope has been constructed and sucessfully tested. The design is based on a magnetically driven sample positioner and single tube scanner. This design enables us to replace scanner and sample positioner modules easily in order to improve the performance of STM. Atomic resolution on graphite surface has been achieved in air with this microscope. -Authors
