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.

A Primer on Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM)
out of 5 stars
04 Apr 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Ron Reifenberger
Scanning Probe Microscopes and their remarkable ability to provide three-dimensional maps of surfaces at the nanometer length scale have arguably been the most important tool in establishing the world-wide emergence of Nanotechnology. In this talk, the fundamental ideas behind the first scanning...

Metal Oxide Nanowires as Gas Sensing Elements: from Basic Research to Real World Applications
21 Sep 2009 | | Contributor(s):: andrei kolmakov
Quasi 1-D metal oxide single crystal chemiresistors are close to occupy their specific niche in the real world of solid state sensorics. Potentially, the major advantage of this kind of sensors with respect to available granular thin film sensors will be their size and stable, reproducible and...

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...

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 . Achieving...
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...
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...
