HI'RES-C

HI'RES-C probe is a revolutionary product that significantly enhances the resolution of SPM. It's made of non-oxidizing hydrophobic form of carbon that provides high resistance to wear and contamination when scanning. Due to its unsurpassed 1 nm curvature radius, it's capable of imaging surface features previously hidden under tip artifacts.
 

HI'RES-C is a SPM probe that has extremely sharp diamond-like high aspect ratio extra-tip at the apex.
Typical curvature radius of th extra-tip ....1 nm
Typical height of extratip ....................... 100 .. 200 nm
The outstanding feature of the extratip is a subnanometer curvature radius. With the new HI'RES-C probe, it becomes possible to achieve surprisingly high resolution of nanometer-sized objects like single molecules, ultrathin films, porous materials, etc.

HI'RES-C probe is more hydrophobic and suffers less contamination than silicon one. The probe is sufficiently wear-resistant for obtaining many routine scans without loss of resolution. 

In general, there are additional smaller extratips near the main one. Though the extratips are of different height and angle, double imaging is possible on rough surfaces.

Recommended RMS roughness of the surface ...... < 20nm
