Applied Scanning Probe Methods XI: Scanning Probe Microscopy by Bharat Bhushan, Harald Fuchs

By Bharat Bhushan, Harald Fuchs

From the reviews:

"Vol. XI comprises contributions approximately fresh advancements in scanning probe microscopy suggestions. … The editors and their gifted authors were one of the leaders within the research of probe tools. … every one bankruptcy captures either the thrill and the significance of the paintings and conclusions mentioned, and may make ecocnomic interpreting for researchers in any respect event degrees. … all of the chapters are supported by means of huge lists of references and fantastically illustrated and in colour too, additionally besides graphs, equations etc." (Current Engineering perform, 2009)

“The articles … are written in adequate element, in order that collage scholars, researchers and engineers can comprehend the physics of the tools, the layout and building of the units and the cantilevers, the sign processing algorithms, and their use in imaging and the skin characterization of the specimens. … SPM features a number of concepts, together with scanning near-field optical microscopy, which has fascinating functions … . well-written and obviously illustrated. … include plentiful experimental info and demanding dialogue of barriers and artifacts.” (Barry R. Masters, Optics & Photonics information, September, 2009)
