Force Calibration

Veeco's force calibration cantilevers are used as a reference for measuring the force constant of other AFM probes.  Most probes used for imaging have tolerances in the specified values of the force constant of cantilevers.  Calibrating a probe against a reference allows for an accurate measurement of the force constant.  These chips come with three different cantilevers of different lengths and force constants, each of them with their force constants pre-measured.  An application note explaining the calibration procedure is also included with the cantilevers.
