Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: NM-2012
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will perfect a proprietary batch-scale processing technique for fabricating ultrahard and ultrasharp atomic force microscopy (AFM) tips. The new process involves two steps. First, chemical vapor deposition (CVD) is used to coat the tips with a chemically inert, highly conductive, an...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: NM-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will focus on the development and scale-up of a new process for fabricating probe tips for atomic force microscopy (AFM). In AFM, images of surfaces with atomic-scale resolution are created by rastering a probe across the surface. The probe itself consists of a tip (which interacts with the...
