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-CONTR AFM probes are designed for contact mode (repulsive mode) AFM imaging. This sensor can also be used for force-distance spectroscopy mode or pulsed force mode (PFM). The CONTR type is optimized for high sensitivity due to a low force constant.
For certain applications the rotated PointProbe® Plus AFM tip offers more symmetric imaging. The rotated AFM tip shape is identical to the classic AFM tip shape but it is rotated by 180° degrees with respect to the AFM cantilever beam direction.
The AFM probe offers unique features:
This AFM probe features alignment grooves on the back side of the holder chip.
