The 3XC series features three different cantilevers for various measurement modes:
- 500DC - Contact mode cantilever
- 200AC - Standard AC mode cantilever
- 240AC - Soft AC mode cantilever for imaging soft samples
The uncoated tips offer sharp tip apexes, chemical inertness and high Quality factors. The back side aluminum coating significantly enhances the cantilever reflectivity. The tetrahedral tips are located precisely at the free ends of the cantilevers. This allows the tips to be positioned accurately over the area of interest on the sample surface.
