Apex Sharp diamond probes
Resonance Frequency (F): 300 kHz Spring Constant (K): 42 N/m

Our flagship highly conductive Apex Sharp diamond probes, formed by a patented process ensure the best possible nanomechanical and electrical performance. Quantitative and repeatable measurements for over 24 hours of continuous use have been demonstrated with these probes. By using wear-resistant sharp diamond probes the tip-sample contact size is well characterized and stays constant during mechanical and electrical measurements leading to more reliable data.

  • Highly doped with boron with a macroscopic resistivity of 0.003 - 0.005 Ω∙cm
  • Typical contact resistance of 10 kΩ depending on contact radius (measured on a silver surface)
  • Gold reflex coating on the detector side of the cantilever to enhance reflectivity
