Platinum Silicide Probes Contact Mode

NANOSENSORS™ PtSi-CONT are designed for contact mode (repulsive mode) AFM imaging. Furthermore this probe can be used for force-distance spectroscopy or pulsed force mode (PFM) The CONT type is optimized for high sensitivity due a low force constant.

For applications that require a wear resistant and electrically conductive tip we recommend this type. NANOSENSORS PtSi-CONT are suitable for C-AFM, Tunneling AFM (TUNA) and Scanning Capacitance Microscopy (SCM).

The probe offers unique features:

Cantilever data:
