For the nanotools® M*-CNT-100 we pushed our proofen EBD technology to the dimensions of a CNT, maintaining EBD´s key strength. Our M*-CNT-100 is not using a multiwall carbon nanotube attached to a silicon cantilever.
What is critical in nanotube technology is solved for the M*-CNT-100:
• controlled tip length
• controlled tip orientation (angle accuracy better 0.5 deg)
• automated fabrication process
The high aspect ratio part of the probe is made from HIGH-DENSITY, DIAMOND LIKE CARBON( HDC/DLC).
• high aspect ratio
• hydrophobic surface properties
• high stiffness/elastic modulus (8 x of that of silicon)
• low thermal mass
• abrasion resistance
length: 100 nm +/- 20
diameter: 10 nm +/- 3
tilt compensation: 3 deg +/- 0.5
Our HDC dissipates static charge. This leads to probes offering the extreme durability of diamond together with high resolution imaging capability. Applying our patented EBD techninque we ensure a stiff and rigid high aspect ratio probe of superior symmetry and nanometer precision.
