After the commercialization of Arrow™ UHF since 2014 the NanoWorld R&D team in collaboration with nanotools GmbH started working on the development of a second generation of High Speed Scanning AFM probes called Ultra-Short Cantilevers.
Many different cantilever and tip materials have been investigated and cantilevers with different dimensions have been fabricated and tested.
These investigations resulted in the following basic types:
1) NanoWorld Ultra-Short Cantilevers
Product commercialized by NanoWorld since 2014 with the name Ultra-Short Cantilevers (USC).
During their development phase, these probes were called Ultra-Short New Material Cantilevers (USC-NM).
Also available on demand in a tipless version as NANOSENSORS™ Special Development item.
2) Ultra-Short Silicon Nitride Cantilevers
Available on demand as NANOSENSORS™ Special Development item.
All these probe types feature the same Electron Beam Deposited (EBD) sharp tip manufactured by nanotools GmbH.
