Pt/ Ir

Veeco's platinum coated probes have an electrically conductive tip and are ideal for Scanning Capacitance Mode (SCM) and electrical characterization applications.  The platinum coating on the front side of the cantilever provides a metallic electrical path from the cantilever die to the apex of the tip.  The platinum coating on the back side of the SCM-PIT/PIC cantilevers compensates for the stress created by the front side coating and also enhances laser reflectivity by a factor of up to 2.5 times.
