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.

The FT-S Microforce Sensing Probes are available with four 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 (learn more)
  • Spherical ruby  tip with a point radius of 125 µm (learn more)

Compatible Measurement Systems

  • FT-MPS02 MEMS Probestation
  • FT-MTA02 Micromechanical Testing And Assembly System
  • FT-NMT02 Nanomechanical Testing System
