Abstract

Here, 3D printed probes (3DTips) are fabricated, using two-photon polymerization, out of epoxy-based resin for atomic force microscopy (AFM) and shown to be more versatile than silicon-based counterparts. The tips can be designed in complex geometries and with various features, thus covering a wide range of spring constants. We show that the 3DTips can be used in contact and dynamic modes, in air and liquid environments and with soft (biological) and hard materials, and can be excited with higher order frequencies. 3DTips are multifunctional for all AFM modes and related experiments, and can potentially open a new era for scanning probe microscopy applications.
