NANOSENSORS™ introduces self-sensing self-actuating Akiyama-Probe

NANOSENSORS™ today announced the introduction of the Akiyama-probe

Akiyama-probeThe Akiyama-probe has been developed in cooperation with the Institute of Microtechnology (IMT) at the University of Neuchâtel for the NANOSENSORS™ brand that is specialized on cutting edge scanning probes for Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) applications. The product is called the Akiyama-probe or A-probe to honour its inventor Dr. Terunobu Akiyama. It is a novel self-sensing and – actuating probe based on a quartz tuning fork combined with a micromachined cantilever for dynamic mode AFM.

NANOSENSORS™ introduces next generation XY-Alignment AFM probe – easy tip exchange without laser repositioning

NANOSENSORS™ today introduced its new PointProbe® Plus XY-Alignment series.

The invention of the Alignment Chip by NANOSENSORS™ more than 10 years ago marked a big step in the direction of AFM probe design for easy to use AFM systems. It offered the possibility of a fast and easy tip exchange without the necessity to reposition the laser beam after the exchange of a probe.
