Induced water condensation and bridge formation by electric fieldsin Atomic Force Microscopy

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

We present an analytical model that explains how in humidenvironments the electric field near a sharp tip enhances the formationof water meniscii and bridges between tip and sample. The predictions ofthe model are compared with experimental measurements of the criticaldistance where the field strength causes bridge formation.
