Learn how an atomic force microscope works. In these simple tutorials, you will learn the basics of how an AFM is operated, and the technology that makes it possible. The underlying theory and design of AFM is also covered, including the differences between vibrating (tapping) and non-vibrating (contact) modes. Choose a featured tutorial below, or select from the menu to the left.
The technology behind atomic force microscopes has been developed by pioneering scientists and engineers at leading technology firms, government labs, and universities throughout the world. AFMs continue to evolve and advance as scientists require higher resolution topographic scanning
Atomic force microscope webinars are pre-recorded video sessions with our AFM Experts, covering a range of topics from image processing and sample preparation to advantages and disadvantages of AFM. Learn how to gain the best performance from your atomic force microscope with instructional videos on the best operating practices and techniques of AFM
