A method of mass production of chips with tubular InР/InxGa1-xAs/InyGa1-yAs probes for scanning tunnelling microscopy (STM) is described. This method includes standard procedures of optical lithography and selective anisotropic etching of InP substrate, that leads to the formation of rolled-up tubes from strained InxGa1-xAs/InyGa1-yAs heterofilms and simultaneous formation of chips. Created chips with semiconductor tube-probes are promising for high-vacuum scanning tunnelling microscopy and spectroscopy, spin tunnelling microscopy and near-field microscopy applications. Keywords: scanning tunnelling microscopy, semiconductor tube-probes, self-rolling of strained heterofilms
