SK2740 Introduction to Scanning Probe Microscopy 6.0 credits
Introduktion till svepprob-mikroskopi
Intermodulation Atomic Force microscopy allows for high resolution maps of both the conservative and dissipative interaction of the tip with the surface. The 3D topography plot uses color to show the dissipated energy in atto Joules (1aJ = 16eV), or energy lost per oscillation cycle when a stiff silicon tip impacts a soft polymer surface. The sample is a blend of polystyrene and amorphous polycaprolactone.
