Atomic Force Microscope Designs and Applications

  • P. J. Bryant (a1), R. G. Miller (a1), R. H. Deeken (a1) and M. A. Pederson (a1)


Atomic force microscopes (AFM) have been designed and tested. A simple reliable version with high resolving power is described here. Materials of construction and operational parameters are reported. Applications to a range of materials has confirmed the general usefulness of AFM technology to materials research.
