Electrochemical AFM

This report demonstrates the capability of the FlexAFM in studies of charged solid-liquid interfaces. In order to carry out electrochemical(in-situ) AFM experiments, a conductive sample was mounted in an electrochemical liquid cell and connected to a lab-build bipotentiostat. We employed Clavilier-type Au(111) single crystal bead crystal electrodes with facets of micrometer-wide terraces. As examples, we studied the lifting of the Au(111) reconstruction, surface oxidation as well as the growth and dissolution of copper clusters in sulfuric acid solution.
