NANOSENSORS™ qp-HBC AFM probes are designed for use in ScanAsyst® or PeakForce Tapping™** in air. The qp-HBC probes are also compatible for contact and non-contact or soft tapping mode AFM imaging The combination of soft AFM cantilever and fairly high resonance frequency enables stable and fast measurements with reduced tip-sample interaction.

The NANOSENSORS™ uniqprobe combines the well-known features of the other NANOSENSORS AFM probe series such as high application versatility and compatibility with most commercial SPMs with the additional advantage of a strongly reduced dispersion of force constant and resonance frequency.

The unsurpassed uniformity of the mechanical characteristics of the uniqprobe series is particularly important for applications, where a large number of AFM probes with known and near identical force constants or resonance frequencies are needed.

The AFM probe offers unique features:

  • compatible for use in ScanAsyst® or PeakForceTapping™** in air 
  • small dispersion of force constant and resonance frequency 
  • circular symmetric AFM tip shape with a hyperbolic profile
  • typical AFM tip height 7µm
  • typical AFM tip radius of curvature smaller than 10nm
  • Al coating on detector side of AFM cantilever
  • AFM tip and AFM cantilevers are made of a quartz-like material
  • alignment grooves on backside of silicon holder chip
  • AFM tip repositioning accuracy of better than ± 8µm (in combination with Alignment Chip)
  • chemically inert

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

The reflective coating is an approximately 30 nm thick aluminum coating on the detector side of the AFM cantilever which enhances the reflectivity of the laser beam. Furthermore it prevents light from interfering within the AFM cantilever. As the coating is nearly stress-free the bending of the AFM cantilever due to stress is less than 2 degrees.
