Sharp graphite tips for nanotechnology applications

Ref No: Fer-3435-17; OM-0406

Sharp graphite tips have been developed in the lab of Dr Amalio Fernandez-Pacheco at the University of Cambridge using a three-step polishing method. The final diameter of the tips is less than 5 microns, and can be shaped to sub-100 nm sizes and special geometries if the application requires it. These sharp tips have potential uses in various nanotechnology applications such as:

1) Tomographic holders

2) Probes for micromanipulation

3) Semiconducting probes for electrical measurements

4) Probes in organic systems to study their elastic properties
