A modular transferable ultra-high vacuum compatible device has a body with a tunnel through its thickness. An interferometric sensor is mounted above the body and has a brace on which a cantilever is disposed and through which an optical fiber passes so that the two may be aligned prior to installation in an atomic force measurement apparatus. The sensor-mounted body is coupled to a mount for engaging an atomic force measurement apparatus to act as the interferometric head of the apparatus.
