Ultra-Short Cantilevers (USC)

for Fast-/High-Speed AFM

NanoWorld® Ultra-Short Cantilevers (USC) for High-Speed AFM (HS-AFM) combine very small AFM cantilevers made of a quartz-like material which are designed for resonating at frequencies of up to 5 MHz and a very sharp and wear resistant High Density Carbon/Diamond Like Carbon (HDC/DLC) AFM tip.

In order to provide a suitable AFM probe for the complete range of high speed scanning applications, the Ultra-Short Cantilevers series consists of six different types of AFM probes divided in 2 categories.

The first category is mainly dedicated to dynamic mode AFM applications in air whereas the second category is mainly dedicated to AFM applications in liquid.

For detailed information see below:
