This is the standard type of SCL’s self-sensing cantilevers. It exhibits a sharp tip made of silicon with a tip radius of <15 nm.
By standard (STD) the cantilever is delivered on our cantilever PCB (CL-PCB) with a small 10 pin connector on its lower side. On request you can order also only the Si chip without PCB and connector for bonding on your own PCB holder.
We offer this cantilever type with or without an integrated heater. PRSA (Piezo-Resistive Sensing & Active) cantilever probes are equipped with an additional thermal actuator (heater structure) on the cantilever. PRS (Piezo-Resistive Sensing) cantilever probes provide the sensing Wheatstone bridge (without a thermal actuator).
This type is available in two specification ranges with a medium frequency of 50 kHz or 80 kHz depending on cantilever thickness.
