Applied scanning probe methods 3. Characterization by Bharat Bhushan, Harald Fuchs

By Bharat Bhushan, Harald Fuchs

Volumes II, III and IV study the actual and technical origin for fresh growth in utilized near-field scanning probe suggestions, and construct upon the 1st quantity released in early 2004. the sector is progressing so speedy that there's a desire for a moment set of volumes to seize the most recent advancements. It constitutes a well timed accomplished evaluate of SPM functions, now that commercial functions span topographic and dynamical floor reviews of thin-film semiconductors, polymers, paper, ceramics, and magnetic and organic fabrics. quantity II introduces scanning probe microscopy, together with sensor expertise, quantity III covers the total diversity of characterization percentages utilizing SPM and quantity IV deals chapters on makes use of in numerous business functions. The overseas viewpoint provided in those 3 volumes - which belong jointly - contributes extra to the evolution of SPM techniques.

The tip is oscillated by an alternating magnetic field while being scanned across the surface. By passing the raw deflection signal from the AFM-scanning head to a PicoTREC signal-processing system, the oscillation is split into lower and upper parts, resulting in simultaneously acquired topography and recognition images. 1 N/m. Measurements were performed in PBS buffer with 5 nm free tip oscillation amplitude at 5 kHz driving frequency and 20% amplitude reduction. The lateral scanning frequency was of 1 Hz.
