NanoWorld Pointprobe® CONT AFM probes are designed for contact mode imaging. Furthermore this AFM probe can be used for force-distance spectroscopy mode or pulsed force mode (PFM). The CONT type is optimised for high sensitivity due to a low force constant.
All SPM and AFM probes of the Pointprobe® series are made from monolithic silicon which is highly doped to dissipate static charge. They are chemically inert and offer a high mechanical Q-factor for high sensitivity. The AFM tip is shaped like a polygon based pyramid.This AFM probe was sold by Veeco Instruments Inc. for over 10 years up until April 2007. Bruker Corporation, which acquired Veeco metrology business, is no longer selling the original AFM probe which has always been manufactured by NanoWorld®.
