Noncontact Atomic Force Microscopy
Since the original publication of Noncontact Atomic Force Microscopy\nin 2002, the noncontact atomic force microscope (NC-AFM) has achieved\nremarkable progress. This second treatment deals with the following\noutstanding recent results obtained with atomic resolution since\nthen: force spectroscopy and mapping with atomic resolution; tuning\nfork; atomic manipulation; magnetic exchange force microscopy; atomic\nand molecular imaging in liquids; and other new technologies. These\nresults and technologies are now helping evolve NC-AFM toward practical\ntools for characterization and manipulation of individual atoms/molecules\nand nanostructures with atomic/subatomic resolution. Therefore, the\nbook exemplifies how NC-AFM has become a crucial tool for the expanding\nfields of nanoscience and nanotechnology.
