    I’ve made it so far through lectures 9-18 and I have to say that this is one of the finest explanations of AFM I’ve come across. The material is presented well and in a simple, yet rigorous manner (in particular the explanations of the analytical expressions). I’m a graduate student that has been working on AFM for 2 years now and this is by far the most instructional and beneficial collection of learning material I’ve come across. Before you attempt to learn the subject from review papers, watch these lectures.

    Excellent course, filled with relevant and current examples for AFM users covering solid state and biological samples. Should be compulsory viewing for any student/researcher who considers themselves an AFM user! The availability of video, breeze (flash slides with lecture audio) and PDF notes allows for great flexibility while perusing this course, which covers fundamental physical interactions to instrument error.
