A resistive probe based Scanning Thermal Microscope (SThM) was implemented in an analysis chamber of a Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM). By means of this hybrid-system thermal device, specific characteristics are detectable. Variable punctual heat sources can be simulated and the influence of ambient parameters can be investigated.
