The 4XC series features four different cantilevers for various measurement modes, two on each side of the holder chip:
500DC - Contact mode cantilever
240AC - Soft AC mode cantilever for imaging soft samples
200AC - Standard AC mode cantilever
65AC - High resonance frequency cantilever for High speed scanning
The gold coated version is suitable for biological applications, tip functionalization and custom applications. The overall gold coating ensures inertness and electrical conductivity, as well as high and stable laser reflectivity in air, liquid and aggressive chemical environments. 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.
