Abstract

Kelvin probe force microscopy (KPFM) is a powerful technique to probe the local electronic structure of materials with atomic force microscopy. One assumption often made is that the applied bias drops fully in the tip-sample junction. We have recently identified an effect, the Phantom force, which can be explained by an ohmic voltage drop near the tip-sample junction causing a reduction of the ...
