PPP-CONTSCR 0.2 23 Nanosensors ▪ Contact cantilever with higher Q factor ▪ Backside reflex coating Request Quote

The NANOSENSORS™ PPP-CONTSCR is an alternative cantilever type for contact mode applications. The length of cantilever is reduced with respect to the preferred contact mode type enabling easier exchange with non-contact mode probes for some AFM instruments. Additionally, this probe type allows the application for lateral or friction force mode.
