on 19.10.2020 at 17:03 by Romain Stomp on Blog of Romain Stomp
Following up on the webinar dedicated to Kelvin Probe Force Microscopy (KPFM) techniques, I’d like to post a short summary in this blog as well as answers to most questions raised during this event. The recording of this webinar can […]

The many applications of the MF-MD Multi-Demodulator option

on 24.08.2020 at 09:08 by Jelena on Blog of Jelena Trbovic
During my research days, lock-in amplifiers were a standard fixture in a transport measurement setup, and there were many of them. Each lock-in measured one signal in the experiment. Adding more lock-in amplifiers in the setup was the only way […]

First of all thank you everyone for attending the Nanostructure Transport Characterization Webinar! It was my first Webinar and it was an amazing experience for the whole team. We got a lot of questions and in this blog I will […]

How to reduce noise floor and improve SNR by employing cross-correlation techniques

on 19.05.2020 at 15:30 by Jithesh Srinivas on Blog of Jithesh Srinivas
Ultra-sensitive voltage measurements is a crucial requirement for applications such as quantum device characterization [1]. Weak signals become easily obscured by thermal noise, especially that coming from the measurement apparatus; this increases the noise floor [2] and determines a lower […]

Meeting SPM Users Virtually

on 16.05.2020 at 06:32 by Romain Stomp on Blog of Romain Stomp
The 4th SPM User Meeting that was originally planned to occur in April in Lyon, was rescheduled to 2021 due to the Covid-19 situation. We therefore found inventive ways to stay connected with our community, in a virtual manner, while […]

DFRT revisited: from feedback optimization to full DAQ acquisition

on 18.02.2020 at 18:17 by Romain Stomp on Blog of Romain Stomp
The Data Acquisition module (DAQ) in LabOne has been addressed in 2 recent blog posts: A deep dive into data acquisition with the DAQ tool & Choose the right tool to acquire lock-in data. One other great application area for […]

Resonance enhancement: a tale of two data analysis methods

on 17.09.2019 at 11:37 by Romain Stomp on Blog of Romain Stomp
The Benefit and Challenge of using Resonance Enhancement Resonance enhancement technique is the fastlane toward raising signal well above the noise floor to increase signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and dynamical range. Such an approach is common for Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) […]

SPM community brought together in Zurich
