NANOSENSORS™ PtSi-NCH probes are designed for non-contact mode or tapping mode AFM (also known as: attractive or dynamic mode). This probe type combines high operation stability with outstanding sensitivity and fast scanning ability.
For applications that require a wear resistant and an electrically conductive tip we recommend this type. NANOSENSORS PtSi-NCH probes are suitable for C-AFM and Tunneling AFM.
The Platinum Silicide coating shows an excellent conductivity (almost approaching metal conductivity). The typical tip radius of curvature is around 25 nm.The probe offers unique features:
- platinum silicide coating with excellent conductivity and good wear-out behavior
- chemically inert
- high mechanical Q-factor for high sensitivity
