  Working Principles
Click to ViewAtomic Force Microscopy is a method for high resolution surface imaging. The AFM gives us a window into this nanoscale world. It uses a cantilever with a very sharp tip to scan over a sample surface. As the tip approaches the surface, the close-range, attractive force between the surface and the tip cause the cantilever to deflect towards the surface.

  User Instructions
Measurement: Surface scanning contact and non contact mode.Sample thickness :1 cm maximum
