How to optimize AFM scan parameters gear icon

NanoWorld Pointprobe® NCSTR AFM probes are designed for non-contact or soft tapping mode imaging. The combination of soft AFM cantilever and fairly high resonance frequency enables stable and fast measurements with reduced tip-sample interaction. Thus, AFM tip and sample wear could be significantly decreased.

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.

Additionally, this AFM probe offers an excellent tip radius of curvature.

For applications requiring lower resonance frequencies or a AFM cantilever length exceeding 150 µm use NanoWorld Pointprobe® type NCLR. For standard non-contact / tapping mode application use NanoWorld Pointprobe® type NCHR.

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

Aluminum Reflex Coating

The aluminum reflex coating consists of a 30 nm thick aluminum layer deposited on the detector side of the AFM cantilever which enhances the reflectance of the laser beam by a factor of 2.5. Furthermore it prevents light from interfering within the AFM cantilever.
