Self-Sensing Cantilevers with Silicon Tip


General description for silicon tip cantilevers

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).

Order Information:

When this type is ordered as Si chip (PRSA-L300-CHP) its specs ranges from PRSA-L300-F50 to PRSA-L300-F80 because the parameters can not be measured without electrical contacts.
