We demonstrate an electrostatic force microscopy based on a quartz tuning fork with 50 nm spatial resolution and 1 pN force sensitivity. We use a tuning fork with a spring constant of 1300 N/m and a Q factor of 3000. A sharpened nickel tip is attached to a prong of the tuning fork as well as electrically connected to the electrode of the prong. By applying a dc bias to the tip, ferroelectric domain patterns are recorded and read out on piezoelectric thin film. © 2002 American Institute of Physics.
