21.07.2016, AFM cantilevers with conductive coating TiN
 
We’re glad to announce that AFM probes with titanium nitride (TiN) coating appeared in our assortment again.
High hardness of this material and its melting temperature around 3500 C provides its utility in wide range of applications.
 
Our practice of AFM measurements shows that thin films of TiN spread over AFM cantilever’s tip’s end are stable in high currents and any standard force loads that arise in the contact AFM technique. Our first cantilevers with conductive TiN coating were prepared and investigated in 1998 as the result of the common project of NT-MDT and State Research Institute for Problems in Physics (V. Shevyakov, S. Lemeshko, V. Roschin. Conductive SPM probes of base Ti or W refractory compounds. Nanotechnology, 9 (1998) 352-355).
 
Since July TiN coated AFM cantilevers are presented in our stock by models: NSG01/TiN and FMG01/TiN. If you need AFM probes with other resonance and stiffness parameters, please, don’t hesitate to write to Lisov@ntmdt.ru (Evgeniy Lisov). In future we’re going to extend TiN assortment over all models of Golden series.
 
Refreshing our production range we also announce the new special: with any offer made in August the one may claim to try conductive TiN cantilevers. And we will send a test box of three NSG01/TiN or FMG01/TiN probes for free. We will also appreciate if you share with us your opinion after trying these probes later!

03.06.2016, NT-MDT presents conductive probes with the modified coating W2C+

Due to volume doping with anticorrosion elements the new coating W2C+, which was earlier proven to be stable under high currents and pressures, may also work for a long time in high humidity atmosphere.

Several experiments were carried out to check the result. Two sets of probes coated by W2C and W2C+ layers correspondingly were being placed into atmosphere of more than 90% humidity for several days. Performance capabilities of the probes were tested by current-voltage curves and scans on HOPG. Before being held in humid air all cantilevers worked correctly showing good conductivity. But already after 8 days old-type coating have lost their conductive properties. The same time probes W2C+ didn’t stop conducting even after 16 days of storage in 90% and more humidity.

We’re also delighted to announce that since June 2016 we will sell only new W2C+ probes from our web-site. The same time, cost of this model stays the same.
More of all, we will be glad if our customers try these probes’ possibilities on practice. When the one orders any model of conductive probes from our web-site (http://www.ntmdt-tips.com/) this summer we will add to the order a test box of 3 cantilevers HA_C/W2C or HA_NC/W2C at choice.
