Description

Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) is a branch of microscopy that forms images of surfaces using a physical probe that scans the specimen. An image of the surface is obtained by mechanically moving the probe in a raster scan of the specimen, line by line, and recording the probe-surface interaction as a function of position.

  9. SPMW Scanning Impedance Microscopy: probing local electronic structure and transport anomalies

    05 Jan 2007 | | Contributor(s):: dawn bonnell

    Multiple modulation SPM is a general term for a strategy that extracts information about a surface or nanostructure by combining various signals on samples and tips, using multiple frequencies to distinguish them and accessing multiple harmonics in detection. In addition to the usual conductance,...

  10. SPMW A fresh look to amplitude-modulation AFM: Force minimization, interaction measurement, and the quest for high resolution

    05 Jan 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Udo D. Schwarz

    Frequency modulation atomic force microscopy (FM-AFM) has been able to deliver high-resolution atomic-scale images in ultrahigh vacuum for over one decade. In addition, there have been recent reports where atomic resolution has been achieved in air and liquids using FM-AFM [1]. Achieving...

  11. Orbital Mediated Tunneling in a New Unimolecular Rectifier

    25 May 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Robert Metzger, NCN at Northwestern University

    In 1997 we showed that hexadecylquinolinium tricyanoquinodimethanide is a unimolecular rectifier, by scanning tunneling microscopy and also as a Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) monolayer, sandwiched between Al electrodes. We have now seen rectification in a new molecule: this rectification can be followed...

  12. SPMW AFM at Video Rate and Beyond

    16 May 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Mervyn Miles

    The particular advantages that atomic force microscopy (AFM) has over other types of microscopy are well-known, but it has the one major disadvantage of low imaging rates in conventional instruments in which each image requires typically a minute or more to collect. This has two major detrimental...
