Oxford Instruments Asylum Research Announces New SurfRider Econo Board Probes for Routine AFM Measurements

Get ready to surf your sample with new economical atomic force microscope (AFM) probes. “Econo Board™ Probes” are the first group of probes released from Asylum Research’s new line of SurfRider™ Probes.

They are budget-priced probes that rival the performance of more expensive premium probes, making them suitable for nearly all routine AFM measurements. As the probes are inexpensive, they are also perfect for training or education; an occasional tip crash “wipeout” won’t break the budget!

Econo Board Probes are available in eight different models covering resonance frequencies ranging from 13 to 300 kHz.  Econo Board probes come in PtIr coated and non-coated models. They are ideal for all AFM brands, models, and modes including tapping mode, force modulation, contact mode, and nanoelectrical and nanomechanical characterization modes.

Econo Board probes can be used by all AFM users doing routine measurements. We’re excited to now offer not only an economical probe, but one that can be used for many advanced modes. When you buy probes from Asylum Research, you are assured that the industry’s best customer support team will help you select the optimal probe for your sample and experiment.
