Scanning Probe Microscopes (SPM)

Scanning probe microscopes (SPM) is a branch of microscopy that creates images of surfaces using a physical probe that scans a specimen. An image of the surface is obtained by mechanically moving the probe in a raster scan of the specimen, line by line, and recording the probe-surface interaction as a function of position. Scanning probe microscopes allow scientists to image, characterize and even manipulate material structures at exceedingly small scales including features of atomic proportions.
