Product Description

NanoWorld® Pointprobe® NCL probes are designed for non-contact or tapping mode imaging and offer an alternative to our high frequency non-contact type NCH. The NCL type is recommended if the feedback loop of the microscope does not accept high frequencies or if the detection system needs a minimum cantilever length (> 125 µm). This probe combines high operation stability with outstanding sensitivity. Compared to the high frequency non-contact type NCH the maximum scanning speed is slightly reduced.

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 tip is shaped like a polygon based pyramid with a typical height of 10 - 15 µm.

Additionally, this probe offers typical tip radius of curvature of less than 8 nm.

For applications allowing higher resonance frequencies or a shorter cantilever length we recommend our Pointprobe® type NCH.

Image A trapezoidal cross section of the cantilever and therefore 30% wider (e.g. NCH) cantilever detector side result in easier and faster laser adjustment. Additionally, because there is simply more space to place and reflect the laser beam, a higher SUM signal is reached.
