A wafer of high quality, etched silicon probes for TappingMode™ and other non-contact modes.  Unmounted for use on standard AFM's.

Bruker AFM Probes has introduced an improved version of its popular,TESP/TESPA AFM probes. Bruker’s new line of TESP high quality premiumetched silicon probes set the industry standard for TappingMode™ and non-contact mode in air.  

The new design provides:
•         Tighter dimensional specifications for improved probe to probe consistency
•         Tighter alignment of the tip apex to the cantilever resulting in easier laser positioning over the tip
•         Improved probe quality & aesthetics  

This AFM probe is unmounted for use on any AFM and is also available without Aluminum reflex coating as model TESPW-V2.  

The current model TESPAW is available for ordering through early 2014 at which point, it will become obsolete.
