Magnetic metal AFM discs

Magnetic metal specimen support discs are used on the AFM and SPM systems which employ a button magnet to hold metal specimen disc. Nano-Tec metal specimen discs are made of a magnetic type 430 stainless steel with a nominal thickness of 0.90mm and a tolerance of +/- 0.08mm.
With smooth edges and flat surfaces, Nano-Tec AFM / SPM discs ensure secure holding with the button magnet. Specimens can be mounted directly on the metal discs with double-sided tape, epoxy or conductive paste.  If a mica specimen support is needed, they can be easily mounted on the metal support discs.

Metals specimen support discs are currently offered in:


  • Bright stainless-steel Nano-Tec metal AFM/SPM specimen discs. They are cleaned after manufacturing to remove the dull grey oxide layer found on other brands on AFM/ SPM discs.  Available in five diameters: 6, 10, 12, 15 and 20mm. Packaged in a plastic tube of 50 each.
  • Gold plated Nano-Tec metal AFM/SPM specimen discs with 1µm of pure gold. Gold is an inert metal with a high electrical and thermal conductivity and resist electromigration. Available in four diameters: 10, 12, 15 and 20mm. Packaged in a 40-100808 AFM disc storage box.
