Measuring of individual grains in micro-crystalline silicon

  1. left image: topography of grains measured by ambient atomic force microscopy (AFM)
  2. right image: simultaneously measured map of local conductivity.
We are measuring the current flowing from the AFM tip through the sample to the bottom electrode.
