Leading edge in sharpness and durability


  • SPM and AFM probes for wide range of applications in contact
    mode or dynamic mode
  • fits to all well-known commercial SPMs and AFMs
  • silicon nitride cantilevers and tips
  • cantilevers are supported by a support chip made of pyrex-glass
  • delivery as separated single support chips for easy handling

Material Features

  • low-stress silicon nitride for lowest cantilever bending
  • excellent hardness for wear resistance and extended lifetime


  • multi-lever design with either four rectangular cantilevers or four triangular
  • reflective chromium/gold coating on the backside of the cantilevers
  • stress compensated with bending below 2°

Support Chip

  • support chips made of pyrex-glass (3.4 mm x 1.6 mm x 0.5 mm)
  • easy handling due to single support chips


  • oxide sharpened pyramidal probe tips
  • tip height 3.5 ~m and tip radius of curvature typically < 10 nm
  • macroscopic half-cone angle 35°
  • tipless versions also available


  • 65 nm thick chromium/gold coating on the backside of the cantilevers
  • enhances reflectance of the laser beam
  • 35 nm thick chromium/gold coating on both sides of the scanning probe

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
