Are you curious about the latest AFM characterization techniques for thin films that are now faster, easier to perform, and yield quantitative results? Oxford Instruments Asylum Research in conjunction with Materials Today will discuss the powerful capabilities and techniques of today’s atomic force microscopes (AFMs) for evaluating thin films.
• Recent improvements in AFM instrumentation for speed, sensitivity and ease of use
• Basic concepts of surface imaging and analysis
• Advanced techniques for electrical, electromechanical and other functional response
We present an overview of these techniques for a variety of thin film applications. We'll also discuss in detail an example of their application to memory access devices in the semiconductor industry. New capabilities for nanomechanical imaging are also briefly introduced.
