Silicided silicon microtips for scanning probe microscopy

Image Number 12 for United States Patent #6198300.

A micromechanical sensor probe for a scanned-probe tool includes a silicon cantilever and a silicon tip physically attached to the cantilever. The micromechanical sensor probe has a coating of a refractory metal silicide formed at least on the tip. Titanium silicide is preferred. The probe also has a layer of refractory metal nitride formed entirely over the refractory metal silicide.
