Nanotechnology for the Tip-Surface Interface

In the mid-1980’s, researchers first discovered that tips could image surfaces with atomic resolution and move individual atoms on a surface.  Since then, scanning probe microscopy and nano-manipulation applications have grown exponentially and the need for enhanced tips is greater than ever.

Our mission is to create needles and tips that provide superior tip-surface contacts.  Tiptek’s probes and needles give high resolution, long life, and robust tip-surface interactions in the following three applications:

Atomically precise hydrogen resist lithography (AP-HRL) demonstrated with a Tiptek probe where "TIPTEK" is written with nanometer linewidth.
