This is a special type of SCL’s self-sensing cantilevers without a tip (tipless, TL). This cantilever type is especially suitable for torque magnetometry, force sensing, gas property measurements, and many more applications. The free place where normally the AFM is can be used to e.g. deposit an own tip, glue a sample, etc.
By standard (STD) the cantilever is delivered on our cantilever PCB (CL-PCB) with a small 10 pin connector on its lower side. But you can also order only the Si chip without PCB and connector for bonding on your own PCB holder.
We offer this cantilever type with or without an on chip 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.
