Adding AFM to an LFM sensor

Force is a vector! And when we perform atomic force microscopy, we often select which component of force we want to measure by the...

Snapshot of a molecular switch

Scanning probe microscopes – like the scanning tunneling microscope, and the atomic force microscope – give us valuable information about...

Do you like Coulomb's Law?

Understanding the signal we observe with AFM is at the heart of making conclusions about the systems we study. And when we perform...

Processing lateral AFM data

What do we measure when we record AFM data? In our setup, we drive the tip to oscillate and measure the frequency shift as the tip...

How clean/dirty are 2D materials?

You might be familiar with graphene - an atomically-thin layer of carbon. There are other materials that fall under this category,...
