  • What is the considerations to select a probe for PFM and force curves?

    We have a Chyper-ES equipment and we are interested to measure piezoelectric and mechanical properties to a polymer. What is the probe characteristics what I must consider to select the correct probe according to the material?

    Sorry for the delayed response on this. I would recommend asking this kind of question on the cypher forum. I dont normally look here for applications questions. I normally recommend three types of probes:

    For everyday use where there is not a big concern for the tip radius to stay sharp I use a very high force (>5V setpoint) and the AC240TM probes:

    For low tip wear and high resolution (<10nm) I recommend the Adama probes:

    For low tip wear with less resolution I use the CDT doped diamond probes:
