These tips are specifically designed for high mechanical loads and scratch testing applications. By using wear-resistant diamond and a broad cone angle the contact size is well characterized and stays constant during repeated mechanical measurements. These probes have demonstrated highly repeatable deep (~100nm) indentations into materials such as fused silica and stainless steel and can image the indents at high resolution in-situ using the same probe. A gold reflex coating deposited on the detector side of the cantilever to enhance reflectivity.
