The cantilevers were coated with silicon dioxide and a via was fabricated through the oxide at the tip apex and backfilled with tungsten to create an insulated probe with a conducting tip. The stiffness and Q factor of the cantilevers increased after the modifications and their resonances shifted to higher frequencies. The coupling strength between the cantilever and the coating are determined. Electromechanical imaging of ferroelectric domains, current voltage probing of a gold surface, and a probe apex repair process are demonstrated.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||American Institute of Physics||Journal:||Applied Physics Letters||Volume:||91||Issue:||9||Start page:||093130||Copyright (published version):||2007, American Institute of Physics||Keywords:||Electromechanical imaging; Liquids||DOI:||10.1063/1.2778762||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
