The KP Technology team has many years’ experience in the field of surface science. As a company we perform a significant amount of material research and training consultancy, with an emphasis on work function and surface potential evaluation of client samples.
Read on to learn more about TRAINING and CONSULTANCY SERVICES, to get in touch if you require TECHNICAL SUPPORT for one of our systems or if you NEED MORE INFORMATION on how we can support your learning and research.
You can also view VIDEOS that will assist you in best practice measurement set up for single point and scanning measurements using KP Technology systems.
If you are a new customer or indeed have had a KP Technology Kelvin Probe system for some time, our specially developed virtual training course can aid your learning of the Kelvin Probe technique and advance your approach to materials research.
KP Technology Probe Tutorial and Virtual Workshop
Divided in to manageable 1-2 hour modules, this course is aimed at explaining the Kelvin method to beginners. Modules cover surface work function, Fermi level equilibrium, transient light measurements, signal characterisation, tip biasing procedures, measurement optimisation, sample interpretation, practical training on your system(s) and experimental design.
We can also tailor a virtual workshop to your own individual needs.
All new systems include virtual support delivered through an online video call to set-up your system and take your first measurement free of charge.

Using our state-of-the-art Kelvin probes, KP Technology offers a highly accurate materials analysis service. Analysis can be carried out on a broad range of material types including semi-conductors, solar cells, and bio-technology surfaces. We are continually researching analysis techniques to accommodate new types of samples, increased sample sizes and to provide analysis under varying environmental conditions.
If you are interested in using consultancy or sample analysis services, please provide more details you can contact us using the form below to begin the process. The cost of this service is dependent on sample type and the number of samples to be measured and analysed.
These videos will assist you in best practice when setting up and taking single point and scanning measurements using KP Technology systems.
