The coupling of Scanning Probe Microscopies (SPMs, such as AFM, STM, SNOM, ...) with Synchrotron Radiation (SR) is attracting increasing attention from the nanoscience community. By combining these two tools one can visualise, for example, the sample nanostructure prior to any X-ray characterisation. Coupled with focusing devices or independently, SPMs can provide spatial resolution below the optical limits. Furthermore, the possibility of employing SPMs to manipulate nano-objects under X-ray beams is another exciting perspective. In this context and under the EU FP6 NMP thematic priority, the ESRF is coordinating the X-Tip project, a joint effort of seven European laboratories with the aim to develop an instrument which will serve as a first platform for further development.
