NanoWorld Pointprobe® NCH probes are designed for non-contact or tapping? mode imaging. This probe type combines high operation stability with outstanding sensitivity and fast scanning ability.
All SPM and AFM probes of the Pointprobe® series are made from monolithic silicon which is highly doped to dissipate static charge. They are chemically inert and offer a high mechanical Q-factor for high sensitivity. The tip is shaped like a polygon based pyramid.
This probe was sold by Veeco Instruments Inc. for over 10 years up until April 2007. Bruker Corporation, which acquired Veeco metrology business, is no longer selling the original probe which has always been manufactured by NanoWorld®.
