Nanocrystalline diamond AFM tips for chemical force spectroscopy : fabrication and photochemical functionalization †


The chemical modification of nanocrystalline diamond (NCD) atomic force microscope (AFM) tips was investigated and used for chemical force spectroscopy (CFS). In contrast to common chemical modification routes for gold or silicon AFM tips, this method creates stable C–C bonding to attach functional moieties to the NCD tip. There have been no previous… (More)
