Product Description

Optimized positioning through maximized tip visibility

NanoWorld Arrow™ NC probes are designed for non-contact or tapping mode imaging. This probe type combines high operation stability with outstanding sensitivity and fast scanning ability.

All SPM and AFM probes of the Arrow™ 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. These probes feature a rectangular cantilever with a triangular free end and a tetrahedral tip with a typical height of 10 - 15 µm.

Additionally, this probe offers a typical tip radius of curvature of less than 10 nm.

The unique Arrow™ shape with the tip position at the very end of the cantilever allows easy positioning of the tip on the area of interest.

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.

Coating Description

Aluminum Reflex Coating

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