High-frequency PFM of a PZT Capacitor

PFM amplitude overlaid on AFM topography (left), and phase overlaid on topography (right) of 1µm thick
PZT film with 50nm Pt capacitor electrode. A bias was applied between the bottom and top electrodes and
the tip was electrically isolated. Taken at a frequency of ~1MHz, 5µm scan. Imaged with the MFP-3D AFM.
