The Bilkent University Open Access Articles collection consists of scholarly articles written by Bilkent-affiliated authors that are made available through BUIR under the Bilkent Faculty Open Access Policy, or under related publisher agreements.
Version details are supplied for each paper in the collection:
Original manuscript: author's manuscript prior to formal peer review
Author's final manuscript: final author's manuscript post peer review, without publisher's formatting or copy editing
Final published version: final published article, as it appeared in a journal, conference proceedings, or other formally published context (this version appears here only if allowable under publisher's policy)
Post peer-reviewed scholarly articles are available through BUIR collections, such as those for departments, labs, and research centers.

We report a scanning probe technique that can be used to measure charging of localized states on conducting or partially insulating substrates at room temperature under ambient conditions. Electrostatic interactions in the presence of a charged particle between the tip and the sample is monitored by the second order flexural mode, while the fundamental mode is used for stabilizing the tip-sample separation. Cycling the bias voltage between two limits, it is possible to observe hysteresis of the second order mode amplitude due to charging. Results are presented on silicon nitride films containing silicon nanocrystals.
