PS2.1: Advances in Scanning Probe Microscopy: applications at the Nanoscale
Session co-organisers: Terry McMaster, Markus Morgenstern, Peter Hinterdorfer
Scanning probe microscopes probe various physical properties as, e.g., electronic wave functions, force fields or magnetic domains routinely down to the atomic scale. Recent developments concentrate on improving resolution, e.g., temporal resolution down to the relevant time scales, adapting microscopes for novel materials classes as, e.g. biological molecules, or probing novel properties. The session will cover the most recent developments in scanning probe microscopy with some emphasis on the technical aspects of implementation.
