How to optimize AFM scan parameters gear icon

The PointProbe® Plus (PPP) combines high application versatility and compatibility with most commercial SPMs. The typical AFM tip radius of less than 7 nm and the minimized variation in AFM tip shape provide reproducible images and enhanced resolution.

NANOSENSORS PPP-NCSTAu AFM probes are designed for non-contact or soft tapping mode imaging. The combination of soft AFM cantilever and fairly high resonance frequency enables stable and fast measurements with reduced tip-sample interaction. This feature significantly reduces AFM tip wear and sample wear at the same time.

The AFM probe offers unique features:

  • metallic conductivity of the AFM tip
  • Au coating on both sides of the AFM cantilever
  • chemically inert
  • high mechanical Q-factor for high sensitivity

Please note: Wear at the AFM tip can occur if operating in contact-, friction- or force modulation mode.

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

A metallic layer (Au) is coated on both sides of the AFM cantilever. The AFM tip side coating enhances the conductivity of the AFM tip and allows electrical contacts - the typical AFM tip radius of curvature is less than 50nm. The detector side coating enhances the reflectivity of the laser beam by a factor of 2.5 and prevents light from interfering within the AFM cantilever. The coating process is optimized for stress compensation. As the coating is nearly stress-free the bending of the AFM cantilever due to stress is less than 2 degrees.
