Introduction

AppNano Doped Diamond Probes offers a unique combination of hardness and conducting tip. The tip side of these probes is coated with polycrystalline diamond. The diamond film is in-situ doped with boron to make it highly conducting. The reflex side of the cantilever is coated with Aluminum. These probes are nanofabricated using highly doped single crystal silicon with unparalleled reproducibility and robustness.
