Advanced AFM Electrical Modes

ResiScope II & Soft ResiScope

The World’s Greatest Performance for AFM Electrical Characterization

The ResiScope II is a unique system able to measure AFM resistance over 10 decades with a high sensitivity and resolution.

The Soft ResiScope mode is able to expand the fields of applications of the « ResiScope II » to soft samples (organic solar cells, conducting polymers or other biological samples).

 Resistance measurement
 Current measurement (& IV spectroscopy)


 Resistance 102 ohms to 1012 ohms (10 decades dynamic)
 Output information : R, Log R, Current & I/V Spectroscopy

HD-KFM mode

The most advanced single-pass KFM mode

HD-KFM developed by CSI for the Nano-Observer AFM has the advantage of amplifying the feedback signal through the second eigenmode of the cantilever. Also it allows a much closer probe of the electric field created by the surface potential compared to other approaches.

 Surface potential mapping
 2nd lock-in amplifier
 NO LIFT : Very high sensitivity  & higher spatial resolution
