Educational Webinars “AFM Techniques”

Atomic Force Microscopy PinPoint Nanomechanical Mode for Nanoscale Modulus Mapping – Cantilever Modulus and Applied Force

The applications staff of Park Systems will give this webinar on atomic force microscopy PinPoint Nanomechanical Mode for Nanoscale Modulus Mapping, specifically, we will look at the influence of cantilever stiffness and applied force on the measured modulus.

PinPoint Piezoelectric Force Microscopy

PFM functions by engaging a sample surface with a sharp conductive SPM probe. This probe's tip then has an alternating current (AC) bias applied to it in order to cause a deformation of the sample surface by way of a piezoelectric force.

Electrochemical Atomic Force Microscopy (EC-AFM)

In EC-AFM, users typically perform voltamemetry and corrosion experiments using an electrochemistry cell and a choice of potentiostat or galvanostat depending on the electrochemical application of interest.

PinPoint Nanomechanical mode obtains the best of resolution and accuracy for nanomechanical characterization. Stiffness, elastic modulus, adhesion force are acquired simultaneously in real-time.

Scanning Ion Conductance Microscopy (SICM) and Scanning Electrochemical Microscopy (SECM)

SICM uses the increase of access resistance in a nanopipette placed in an electrolyte solution and monitors the ionic current flowing in and out of this probe—a flow that is hindered as the tip closes in on a sample surface.
