The 160AC-SG with a sharp diamond-like spike is designed for high resolution AC mode AFM imaging. The gold coating ensures high and stable laser reflectivity in air and liquids. The tetrahedral tip is located precisely at the free end of the cantilever. This allows the tip to be positioned accurately over the area of interest on the sample surface.
Please note that while the tetrahedral tip and the tip side of the cantilever are gold coated, the diamond-like spike remains uncoated.
