, Bulgaria – 16 th March 2006 BudgetSensors®,
a Bulgarian manufacturer of silicon and silicon nitride
probes for Atomic Force Microscopes (AFM) announces
the launch of a new calibration standard – the BS-Tipcheck.
The BS-Tipcheck is a SPM sample for fast and convenient
determination of the AFM tip condition, offering
a fast and easy way to compare and categorize different
AFM probes with respect to tip apex shape and sharpness.
It consists of an extremely wear-resistant thin film
coating that is deposited on a silicon chip. This
thin film coating shows a granular, sharply peaked
nanostructure which makes it ideal for reversely
imaging an AFM probe's tip apex.
This product also works perfectly with Auto Tip
Qualification and Tip Characterization software that
is available on the market.
