What is your potential? Introduction to Kelvin Probe Force Microscopy of Tosca AFM

Description:

Local surface electrical properties influence many physical processes and may affect the product quality. Kelvin probe force microscopy provides quantitative information about surface potential, charge distribution and work function variation. This information can be used to analyze the efficiency of solar cells, to study corrosion processes, for monitoring production steps such as chemical etching, to find the defects in thin film coatings or to identify material composition and much more.

In this webinar we will introduce Kelvin Probe Force Microscopy (KPFM), present some interesting applications and explain implementation and operation with Tosca series AFM. You will learn what information Tosca KPFM provides and how this data can improve your development and production process and ultimately your product.
