The Point Probe® Plus (PPP) combines the well-known features of the proven PointProbe® series such as high application versatility and compatibility with most commercial SPMs with a further reduced and more reproducible AFM tip radius as well as a more defined AFM tip shape. The excellent AFM tip radius and the minimized variation in AFM tip shape provide more reproducible images and enhanced resolution.

NANOSENSORS™ PPP-NCLAuD AFM probes are designed for non-contact mode or tapping mode AFM (also known as: attractive or dynamic mode). The NCL type is offered as an alternative to NANOSENSORS™ high frequency non contact type (NCH). PPP-NCLAuD is recommended if the feedback loop of the microscope does not accept high frequencies (400kHz) or if the detection system needs a minimum AFM cantilever length >125µm. Compared to the high frequency non-contact type NCH the maximum scanning speed is slightly reduced. This AFM probe type combines high operation stability with outstanding sensitivity and fast scanning ability.

The AFM probe offers unique features:

  • excellent AFM tip radius of curvature
  • highly doped silicon to dissipate static charge
  • Au coating on detector side of AFM cantilever
  • chemically inert

This product features alignment grooves on the back side of the holder chip.

A metallic layer (Au) is coated on the detector side of the AFM cantilever which enhances the reflectivity of the laser beam by a factor of about 2.5. Furthermore it prevents light from interfering within the AFM cantilever. The virtually stress-free coating is bending the AFM cantilever less than 2 % of the AFM cantilever length.
