New Concept Chip
The ideally vertical side walls of the chip have two remarkable features.
1) Ease in chip handling
Vertical side walls provide larger contact area to grab the chip by tweezers compared with conventional trapezoidal chip cross section. You can grab the chip by tweezers with stability, and avoid the loss of chip by bungled handling. The “New Concept Chip” can save your chip cost.
2) Eliminate problems with chipping and debris
Chipping and debris of silicon chip would interrupt excitation of the chip by PZT when they are inserted between chip holder and chip. Vertical side walls can reduce the chipping and debris of silicon chip when grabbing the chip by tweezers.
The tip is located on the very end of the cantilever. This feature allows you to set the tip over a point of interest on the sample, easily and precisely, if you use an AFM combined with an optical microscope.
Point terminated tip
The tetrahedral shape is ideal for achieving a point terminated tip. In addition to the geometrical dimensions of the tip, the tip is further sharpened with our exclusive sharpening process.
