Conductive diamond probes. Advantages: hard, long-lasting coating. Disadvantages: large radius, low conductivity
Advantages: small radius, excellent conductivity, good wear-out behavior
Platinum(Iridium) coated probes. Advantages: relatively small radius, excellent conductivity. Disadvantages: fast wear-out
Cross sections of current images of (a) a commercial Pt probe (Pt, left image) and (b) a PtSi probe (PtSi, right image).
TUNA mode, DI Icon, sample bias -0.25V, force 1μN, total tip travel distance 13mm. For each tip a cross section out of the first
and the last scan is shown.
