Product Description

Whisker Type High Aspect Ration Silicon AFM Cantilevers NSC05 series for Semicontact ( Intermittent ), Noncontact applications. Typical Resonant Frequency 240 kHz (guaranteed range 140-390kHz), Typical Force Constant 11.8 N/m (guaranteed range 3,1-37,6N/m). Cantilever has Au reflective side coating to increase laser signal.

Whisker probe is an indispensable instrument for studying surfaces of unusual profile with narrow gaps. Standard cantilevers fail to investigate such objects with the necessary precision.

Whisker probes differ from any standard ones by having long slim "whisker" at the very end of the tip. It is possible “whisker” to be grown at any angle to the silicon tip axis for being perpendicular to the investigated surface.

As standard product we offer two variants of inclination angle - 10 and 20 degrees. At customer's request any angle can be grown.

Probes are packed in boxes with 5 pieces.
