NCH AFM probes are designed for non-contact mode or tapping mode AFM (also known as: attractive or dynamic mode).
The so called "Colloidal Probe Technique", where single colloids are attached to AFM cantilevers for force measurements, opens the chance for a better understanding of fundamental interactions in a variety of fields.
Examples are adhesion phenomena, particle-surface-interactions, mechanical properties, suspensions, hydrodynamics and boundary slip - to name just some out of an increasing number of applications.
The probe offers unique features:
- sphere material: gold (Au)
- sphere diameter A = 1.5 µm - 3 µm, B = 3 µm - 5.5 µm, or C = 5.5 µm - 9.5 µm
(Due to different masses the resonance frequency can differ.)
Please choose A, B, or C when ordering!
- highly doped silicon cantilever to dissipate static charge
- chemically inert
- high mechanical Q-factor for high sensitivity
- precise alignment of the cantilever position when used together with the Alignment chip
(within +/- 2 µm)
- compatible with PointProbe® Plus XY-Alignment Series
This product features alignment grooves on the back side of the holder chip.
