NEXT-TIP is a spin-off of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), which is the third largest in Europe and the largest public institution dedicated to research in Spain. In 2012 was stablished as a technology-based company.

The NEXT-TIP Technology is the result of more than 6 years of research under the scientific guidance of Dr. Yves Huttel, Dra. Elisa Román and Dra. Lidia Martínez (co-founders of the company).

In 2012 it was established as a technology-based company, founded by these scientific researchers and BeAble Capital, a technology-focused Venture Capital.


We are a technology-based company that wants to be a worldwide leadership in field of Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) probe, especially in Tip Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (TERS) and related technologies such as nano-FTIR and s-SNOM. We will achieve this goal by means of a strong R&D focused to market together with excellent alliances with the key actors in each sector.

Our mission is the design, development, scale-up and production of high value tips for  applications for SPM (Scanning Probe Microscopy) methods in general, and particularly for AFM systems, based on a patented technology that allows us create innovative tips morphologies from nano-structures created by combination of different nanoparticles with controlled size and chemical composition.


Nowadays, our facilities are located at Parque Científico de Madrid, Campus de Cantoblanco
