Dr. Shi Wenqing, Park Systems
Dr. Wenqing, Application Scientist at Park Systems, will discuss a hybrid scanning nanopipette technique which combines Scanning Ion Conductance Microscopy and Scanning Electrochemical Microscopy. These techniques will help mapping chemical specificity and provide accurate feedback control for probe – sample distance enhancing imaging performance. Dr. Wenqing will highlight some of the work done on electrochemical transport across Nafion membranes which is conducted in the group of Prof. Lane Baker, Indiana University. By using SICM – SECM they were able to observe the heterogeneity in membrane degradation which could be a useful tool to help develop next generation membranes that have improved chemical durability.

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.
