Exploring novel applications for the Kelvin Probe technique

Besides using an specialized SKP for in-situ investigations in synchrotron set-ups [1] in order to assess charging effects of the beam on inorganic samples [2] as well as on biological systems [3] also other applications of the Kelvin probe are investigated, such as for healing to interpret  elctronic tunnelling data obtained across SAM monolayers by the liquid metal eutectic Ga-In (EGaIn) tunneling junction [4]).
