Top Visual Probes

Precision Silicon Cantilevers for Contact & Noncontact Mode

K-Tek Nanotechnology’s Top Visual series probes allow the user precise control over positioning of the tip over a specific point of interest in the sample. This allows for direct, real-time observation of the sample scanning and modification process. Our Top Visual probes are user-friendly and high quality.

Product Details

TOP VISUAL probes intended:
  1. For precise positioning of the tip over the point of interest and for direct real-time observation of sample scanning and modification (nanomanipulation) processes.
  2. For precise positioning of a tightly focused laser spot at the tip end – for investigations of optical effects between tip and sample (TERS, TEFS, s-SNOM etc).
