AFM probes of the 160AC series are designed for standard tapping mode AFM imaging in air or vacuum.
The tetrahedral AFM tip is located precisely at the free end of the AFM cantilever. This allows the AFM tip to be positioned accurately over the area of interest on the sample surface.
The gold coated AFM tip is suitable for biological applications, AFM tip functionalization and custom applications. The overall gold coating ensures inertness and electrical conductivity, as well as high and stable laser reflectivity in air, vacuum, liquid and aggressive chemical environments.
