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.

The FT-S1000-LAT is available with three tip options:

  • Pointy tungsten probe tip with a tip radius smaller than 2 µm
  • Spherical glass tip with a point radius of 25 µm (learn more)
  • Spherical ruby  tip with a point radius of 125 µm (learn more)
