We are happy to announce the winners of the Zurich Instruments Image Contest organised as part of the 5th SPM User Meeting on May 20th, 2021.
Winners of the Image Contest 2021
Christian Ritz, ETH Zürich
Potential landscape on MoS2 flakes measured by frequency-modulation Kelvin probe force microscopy (FM-KPFM), using the HF2LI Lock-in Amplifier for direct sideband detection and feedback. The flakes were grown on SiO2 through chemical vapor deposition by Romana Kalt.
Oleksandr Synhaivskyi, CNRS and Ecole Centrale de Lyon
Vertical ZnO nanowire inside polymer matrix measured by dual-frequency resonance tracking piezoresponse force microscopy (DFRT-PFM). The setup consisted of an HF2LI Lock-in Amplifier connected to the Bruker Dimension 3100 AFM microscope.
Nele Harnack, IBM Research Europe
Current paths in multigrain VO2 device with gold electrodes visualized by temperature rise due to self-heating. The data were acquired with an AFM-based scanning thermal microscope using the demodulators from the HF2LI Lock-in Amplifier.
