Nonconductive Noncontact/Tapping Probes

Standard AFM Probes for Nonconductive Noncontact/Tapping Modes

Our standard silicon, non-conductive AFM probes are available with Au reflective coating. Al reflective coating is available upon special request. Extremely sharp tips allow the user to obtain high-quality images of samples. Standard chip sizes make our AFM probes compatible with most AFM manufacturers. Tapping mode is the most common AFM mode used for scanning in liquids or in ambient conditions. The cantilever intermittently contacts the surface and oscillates with sufficient amplitude which eliminates frictional forces. In non-contact mode the tip and the sample do not touch. The tip is typically 1 nm to 10 nm above the surface to get the best results. Non-contact mode is commonly used for measuring soft samples like organic thin film or biological samples to avoid contaminating the sample.
