Atomic Force Microscope

The AFM has three major abilities: force measurement, imaging, and manipulation.

A probe with a sharp tip is moved over a surface. Interactive forces between the surface and the tip are measured and can be analyzed to measure surface properties such as:

  • topography
  • certain chemical features
  • charge
  • stiffness
