Leading edge in sharpness and durability
NanoWorld® Pyrex-Nitride probes are designed for various imaging applications in contact or dynamic mode.
The Pyrex-Nitride probes have silicon nitride cantilevers with very low force constants and integrated oxide sharpened, pyramidal tips with a height of 3.5 µm. The tip is located 4 µm behind the free end of the cantilever. The probe series features a support chip that is made of Pyrex. The TR series features two different triangular cantilevers.
The typical tip radius of curvature is below 10 nm.
All chips are pre-separated prior to shipment and come in Gel-Pak containers.
Tip shape: Pyramid
Gold Reflex Coating
The gold reflex coating consists of a 70 nm thick gold layer deposited on the detector side of the cantilevers which enhances the reflectance of the laser beam. Furthermore it prevents light from interfering within the cantilever.
As the coating is almost stress-free the bending of the cantilevers due to stress is less than 2 degrees.
