AFM – Atomic Force Microscopy
Atomic-force microscopy (AFM) or scanning-force microscopy (SFM) is a type of scanning probe microscopy (SPM) with a resolution in the nanometer and sub-nanometer range.
The information is gathered by "feeling" or “tapping" the surface with a mechanical probe.
- Material surface roughness measurement and structure observation
- Material surface 2D/3D pattern image
- Nanoscale depth analysis and dimensioning
