Special AFM mode training course on Electrochemistry

Oct 9th &10th, 2018  | Karlsruhe, Germany

Course Objective:

Bruker Customer Support like to invite you to refresh your knowledge on electrochemical AFM. During the 2-day course we will present you ways to prepare your measurements on Dimension Icon and how to set up the experiment.

The course language will be English.


Day 1: The theoretical aspect of electrochemistry will also be briefly covered. In aqueous solutions we will perform electrochemical experiments and investigate the surface with an AFM at the same time.

  • Electrochemistry sample/electrode preparation
  • EC cell set up
  • Experimental set up (Bipotentiostat, Controller input)
  •  Nanoscope EC software explanation
  •  Cyclic Voltammetry in aqueous solution


Day 2: On the second day we would like to work with the special mode SECM where the probe is used as an electrode to measure locally the electrochemical potential on the electrode surface. Probe handling of this highly sensitive method will be part of the training. The system used will be a Dimension Icon.

  • SECM set up
  • Testing SECM probes
  • SECM potential measurements
  • SECM probe cleaning
