Self-sensing technology enables an easy and seamless integration with various instruments (e.g. SEM, TEM, but also many other measurement systems). The cantilever chip is bonded onto a small PCB with a small connector for a quick cantilever exchange.
Standard SCL self-sensing cantilevers exhibit a tip with a tip radius smaller than 15 nm and are available with a variety of resonance frequencies and spring constants. Tipless and long-life SCD-tip cantilevers are available, too.
