Conical AFM Tips
Aspire probes feature the first conically-shaped tips for the mass market.
These unique, high-quality silicon AFM probes are suited for a wide range
of applications in both research & industry and are compatible
with nearly all commercial AFMs.
Nano Manipulation and Sensing Our nano manipulation and sensing devices include a variety of choices. First, our micro grippers are designed to handle micron sized objects ranging from 1 Ám to 100 Ám. Second, our force sensing probes feature a unique force sensing range reaching from nanonewtons to millinewtons. Lastly, our micro controllers are available which interface the sensors and grippers with ease.
Access Probes with Direct Optical View of the AFM Tip: These probes allow a direct optical view of the AFM tip and are designed for applications that require seeing the tip as it engages the surface. They are nanofabricated using highly doped single crystal silicon with unparalleled reproducibility, robustness and sharpness for consistent high resolution imaging capabilities. Available for Tapping Mode, Force Modulation Mode, and Electrostatic Force Mode.
Large Radius Tip AFM Probes These tips offer a defined, large radius, hemispherical tip shape that can be used, for example, for step height measurements over large scan areas. Untreated or chemically modified hemispherical tips are well suited for material characterization and nanoindentation.
High Resolution Solid Carbon Cone High Resolution Solid Carbon Cone AFM probes are designed for tapping, contact, and force modulation mode applications. These probes feature a high resolution solid carbon cone shaped tip (3 nm radius) manufactured by EBID on silicon pedestal and silicon cantilevers. These tips combine high resolution with the ability to scan high aspect ratio structures.
AFM Gold Nanoparticle Kit This is an important product for AFM researchers (characterized colloidal gold particles) which is used for characterization of scanning tip geometry,
reliable calibration of the vertical scale of piezoelectric response, and characterizing vertical dimensions of co-absorbed biomolecules
