The NANOSENSORS™ PPP-LC-MFMR AFM probe is coated with a soft magnetic thin film enabling the measurement of magnetic domains in soft magnetic samples. Due to the low coercivity of the AFM tip coating the magnetisation of the AFM tip will easily get reoriented by hard magnetic samples.
The soft magnetic coating on the AFM tip has a coercivity of app. 7.5Oe and a remanence magnetization of app. 225emu/cm3 (these values were determined on a flat surface).
The SPM probe offers unique features:
This AFM probe features alignment grooves on the back side of the holder chip.
