Assigning moving features in high-speed atomic force microscopy

Phys Dot Org 29 Jun 2022
Horizontal (xy) scanning motion of the tip is controlled via piezoelectric elements; the vertical position of the tip changes as it follows the sample's height profile, generating a force on the cantilever that can be measured and back-converted into a measure of the height, resulting in a height map of the sample's surface.
