FT-S Microforce Sensing Probe

FT-S Microforce Sensing Probe

The FemtoTools FT-S Microforce Sensing Probes are microforce sensors capable of measuring forces from 100 millinewtons (0.1 N) down to several nanonewtons (10-9 N) along the sensor’s probe axis. Both compression and tension forces can be measured. The individual calibration in combination with an outstanding long-term stability and low signal drift guarantees significantly higher measurement accuracy than any other force sensing system in this force range.

Sensor Tip Options

  • Flat silicon tip with a tip size of 50 µm by 50 µm
  • Pointy tungsten probe tip with a tip radius smaller than 2 µm
  • Spherical glass tip with a point radius of 25 µm
  • Spherical ruby tip with a point radius of 125 µm

FT-S-LAT Lateral Microforce Sensing Probe

FT-S-LAT Lateral Microforce Sensing Probe

The FemtoTools FT-S-LAT Lateral Microforce Sensing Probe is a microforce sensor capable of measuring forces from one millinewton (10-3 N) down to several nanonewtons (10-9 N) perpendicular to the sensor’s axis. Both compression and tension forces can be measured. This off-axis measuring capability allows for the vertical micromechanical testing while observing both the sensing-probe tip and the sample under a top-view microscope. The individual calibration in combination with an outstanding long-term stability of the FT-S-LAT Lateral Microforce Sensing Probes guarantees significantly higher measurement accuracy than any other force sensing system in this force range.
