Colloidal Probes

K-Tek Nanotechnology’s special Colloidal Probes are perfect for studying the rheological characteristics of many soft objects. We offer two different configurations: Micron (with micron spheres attached to tipless probes) and Sub-Micron (with sub-micron spheres attached to the tip of the silicon probe). Both come with standard gold (Au) backside coating. Sub-Micron sphere probes are also available with custom coating upon request.
