AFM Tip Coating

 

Scientific director

Dr. Yves Huttel


Equipment

  • Ultra High Vacuum Ion Cluster Source and Multiple Ion Cluster Source

 

Description

The service is devoted to the coating of standard AFM tips by nanoparticles of well-controlled size and chemical composition. The coating of AFM tips using nanoparticles enhances the resolution in AFM imaging (comparable to super sharp), Kelvin probe and other scanning modes. The coatings increases the life time of the tips (long lasting coatings) and are suitable for measuring in tapping, contact or jumping modes. Standard coatings are available as well as customized coatings. For further information, please send an email or call (see below).
