DANGER: One tiny amount of static electricity while you are handling these probes will destroy the tip!

We highly recommend that you utilize an ESD station and if you do not already have one, we have a mobile ESD station for only £ ( EUR).
Considering the costs of these probes, this is a very wise investment.

AFM Probe type:

Akiyama-Probe

Manufacturer: NANOSENSORS
Product Description:

Novel self-sensing and self-actuating (-exciting) probe for dynamic mode Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM)

Akiyama-Probe is based on a quartz tuning fork combined with a micromachined cantilever. The great advantage of this novel probe is that one can benefit from both the tuning fork's extremely stable oscillation and the silicon cantilever's reasonable spring constant with one probe.

Akiyama-Probe is equipped with a special version of the NANOSENSORS™ AdvancedTEC, a high-end sharp silicon tip and has an excellent imaging capability on various samples with different properties, which is as high as that of a conventional optical lever system.

Akiyama-Probe requires neither optical detection, nor an external shaker. Akiyama-Probe occupies only a small volume above the sample. These features make it very attractive for creating a new generation of scanning probe microscopy (SPM) instruments.

Important notice!

Akiyama-Probe is not a plug-and-play probe. If it is not used in an AFM specifically built for its use as offered by some manufacturers it needs its own specific set-up to work. For more information on this set-up please have a look here.
