Our Tilt Compensated High Aspect Ratio Tip (AR5T) is similar to our High Aspect Ratio Tip (AR5). However, the high aspect ratio portion of the tip is tilted 13° with respect to the center axis of the tip. This compensates the tilt angle of the cantilever.
This compensates the tilt angle of the cantilever that results from mounting the probe to the AFM head. This unique feature allows absolutely symmetrical imaging of near-vertical sidewalls. Therefore these tips can be perfectly used to characterize to slope of steep sidewalls.
