Resonant Probe AFM: Uses And Advantages

The construction and functionality of resonant probe atomic force microscopes make them ideal for applications where precise accuracy, adaptability, and high definition are required.

Principles Of Scanning Nitrogen Vacancy Magnetometry Explained

Scanning NV magnetometry commonly is applied in two different ways. The first type of measurement, called a pulsed measurement, is extremely sensitive but very slow. Continuous wave (CW) scanning NV magnetometry, meanwhile, is less sensitive but is relatively fast, recording a single data point within a few seconds.

Near-Field Scanning Optical Microscopes: Capabilities And Applications

The use of NSOM techniques and instrumentation has become essential for material characterization, offering reliable data and diverse applications.

Understanding Noise At The Sub-Nanometer Scale

Every nanopositioner has a small amount of uncertainty in its position, contributing noise to a measurement. It's essential to understand what position noise is and where it comes from to know just how accurate the nanopositioner is.

Building A Do-It-Yourself Atomic Force Microscope

AFMs are useful for studying surfaces on a sub-nanometer scale. Scientists can make their own AFMs with off-the-shelf components, costing as little as $30,000.

AFM Controller: QS-PLL

Mad City Labs' QS-PLL is a controller for atomic force microscopes that improves hardware efficiency. It's used with resonant probes and combines motion and PLL control.
