Atomic force microscopy (AFM) or scanning force microscopy (SFM) is a very high-resolution type of scanning probe microscopy, with demonstrated resolution on the order of fractions of a nanometer, more than 1000 times better than the optical diffraction limit.

    Dear Friends,

    my question is related to AFM imaging of silicon surface. after doing phase (AC mode) imaging of silicon surface. i found the roughness of bare silicon surface is ~ 50 nm...., a resource for nanoscience and nanotechnology, is supported by the National Science Foundation and other funding agencies.
