Atomic force microscopy (AFM) is a microscopy widely used for surface analysis of films, particularly organic films such as polymers and very thin films such as graphene films. The Kelvin probe force microscopy is a variant of the AFM and very important for analysing areas with different potentials on the film surface, allowing the location of regions of higher or lower electron density. This variant of traditional AFM microscopy measures the work function between sample and contact. With this new configuration being requested it will be possible to make images with higher resolution for the identification of different phases, components, as well as with much greater sensitivity for Kelvin measurements.
