In this webinar, we will introduce a new nanoscale electrochemical measurement: PeakForce scanning electrochemical microscopy (SECM). This is the first complete commercial solution for AFM-based SECM with a spatial resolution less than 100 nanometers for electrochemical mapping. Empowered by PeakForce tapping, for the first time, electrochemical activity, conductivity (in liquid) and quantitative nanomechanical properties are acquired concurrently. The probes are a crucial element in AFM-based SECM, and are batch-fabricated consistently assuring a high-quality nanoelectrode. Ease of use aspects as well as probe performance & lifetime are illustrated with a range of examples. PeakForce SECM opens the door to new R&D opportunities in biological systems, energy devices such as batteries, as well as catalysis and corrosion.
