Basics of Piezoelectric Force Microscopy (PFM)

Dr. Christina Newcomb, Park Systems

Dr. Newcomb, Applications Scientist at Park Systems, explains the basics of Piezo Force Microscopy (PFM), common uses of the technique, and even a breakdown of an actual PFM study on the properties of multilayer ceramic capacitors. PFM is a novel AFM mode which has gained recognition for the unique information it can offer on the electromechanical coupling characteristics of various ferroelectric, piezoelectric, polymer, and biological materials.


Webinar Topics:

♦   Introduction to Piezo Force Microscopy

♦   PFM study on the properties of multilayer ceramic capacitors

Application: PFM study on the properties of multilayer ceramic capacitors
