Tipless - Force Modulation Mode

NANOSENSORS™ TL-FM probes are designed for special applications where no tip at the cantilever is needed.

The probe offers unique features:

  • no tip
  • highly doped silicon to dissipate static charge
  • chemically inert
  • high mechanical Q-factor for high sensitivity
  • alignment grooves on backside of silicon holder chip
  • precise alignment of the cantilever position (within +/- 2 µm) when used with the Alignment Chip
  • compatible with PointProbe® Plus XY-Alignment Series
This AFM probe features alignment grooves on the back side of the holder chip. These grooves fit to the NANOSENSORS Alignment Chip.
