The Value Coated probes are aimed at providing AFM users with a low cost solution for a wide range of electrical and magnetic applications such as Electrical Force Microscopy (EFM), Surface Potential Microscopy or Kelvin Probe Force Microscopy (SPoM or KPFM), Tunneling AFM and Conductive AFM (TUNA and CAFM), Scanning Capacitance Microscopy (SCM), Piezoforce Microscopy (PFM), and Magnetic Force Microscopy (MFM). These probes are compatible with most commercially available AFMs.
Each model is offered in a pack containing 10 probes and has quantity discounts available. Each has reflective backside coating to increase laser reflectivity by roughly 2.5x.
- FMV-PT has a highly conductive Platinum Iridium (PtIr) coating and is the most commonly used probe for electrical applications.
- CONTV-PT has a highly conductive Platinum Iridium (PtIr) coating and a longer, softer cantilever designed specifically for contact mode-based electrical imaging techniques.
- MFMV has a magnetic Cobalt Chromium (CoCr) coating for optimal magnetic response in MFM, and can also be used as conductive probe in electrical modes.
