HOW DOES IT WORK?

The atomic force microscope (AFM), a scanning probe microscope, obtains topographical information at the nano-scale. A sharp tip attached to the end of a cantilever rasters across an area while a laser and photodiode are used to monitor the tip force on the surface. A feedback loop between the photodiode and the piezo crystal maintains a constant force during contact mode imaging and constant amplitude during intermittent contact mode imaging.
