Electrical/ Topography - Sharp conductive diamond probes

CSI AFM ProbesAFM Modes:

  • Contact Mode/ Resonant Mode
  • Force Modulation
  • C-AFM
  • ResiScope
  • PFM
  • EFM
  • HD-KFM, etc.

Highly conductive diamond probes, formed by a unique patented process ensure the best possible wear and electrical performance. These tips are sharper and last longer than any other electrical AFM probe. Our Super-Sharp probes have demonstrated atomic resolution in air and vacuum environments.

Cone Probes, imaging and electrical modes

The FM-LC and NCH-LC probes are a new cone shaped tip what offers you the advantages of diamond at higher resolution and without the variability in tip shape associated with competing diamond coated products. These probes are ideally suited to long lifetime imaging of low relief samples. They are also conductive with a contact resistance in the 100 kOhm range

AFM Modes:
