What is atomic force microscopy?
How does an AFM actually work?
What AFM modes do I really need?
How do I start?
These are all legitimate questions that quickly come to mind when first buying an AFM or starting with atomic force microscopy. Together with Dalia Yablon of SurfaceChar, we created an overview, which we hope will set you on the right track with some general information on atomic force microscopy and atomic force microscopes. Also helpful are the microscope simulation mode and operating instructions included with our control software. It's free to install and try!
