Introduction to PinPoint Piezoelectric Force Microscopy (PFM)

Dr. Wenqing Shi, Park Systems

Dr. Shi, Application Scientist at Park Systems, is proud to present an introduction to PinPoint piezoelectric force microscopy (PFM)

PFM is one type of scanning probe microscopy (SPM) technique that allows imaging and manipulation of piezoelectric and ferroelectric materials domains. 

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. The PinPoint variant of PFM, specific to Park Systems AFMs, enables image acquisition with higher spatial resolution without any lateral force.

Webinar Topic:

♦   PFM is a type of scanning probe microscopy (SPM) technique that allows imaging and manipulation of piezoelectric and ferroelectric materials domains.

Application: PinPoint Piezoelectric Force Microscopy (PFM)
