BudgetSensors Introduces New Tapping AFM Probe and Alignment Grooves for a Selection of AFM Probes
Sofia, Bulgaria | Posted on November 3rd, 2007
Following the introduction of BudgetSensors®' Soft Tapping Mode AFM Probes Tap150-G and Tap150Al-G, the company now announces the introduction of another type of Tapping Mode AFM probe - the Tap190-G. In addition to a resonance frequency of about 190 kHz, Tap190-G AFM probes are characterized by a long cantilever, compared to Tap300 and Tap150-G AFM probes, which is required for some specific models of AFM systems by certain manufacturers, such as Quesant.
At the same time, BudgetSensors announces that it now offers a selection of AFM probes featuring alignment grooves on the back side of the holder chip, which is indicated by the index "-G" in the product order code. Alignment grooves are a necessary requirement for the mounting of AFM probes into some specific AFM systems, such as NanoSurf. In AFM systems where alignment grooves are not necessary, this feature doesn't affect the mounting of the AFM probe in any way.
The current product range of AFM probes with alignment grooves on the holder chip features:
• Tap150-G soft tapping mode AFM probes
• Tap150Al-G soft tapping mode AFM probes with Al coating
• Tap190-G tapping mode AFM probes with long cantilever
• Tap190Al-G tapping mode AFM probes with long cantilever and Al coating
• Multi75Al-G force modulation AFM probes with Al coating
• ContAl-G contact mode AFM probes with Al coating
• Multi75E-G electrical force modulation AFM probes
• Multi75M-G magnetic AFM probes
More product types with alignment grooves will be released soon.
With or without alignment grooves, .the prices of all comparable product types remain the same.
BudgetSensors is working on more product introductions, which will follow until the end of this year.
