AEP/Eng 102 Homework Assignment 2 Reading/web study assignment Attached to this posting is a pdf document prepared by Veeco Instruments which provides a good overview of the basics of scanned probe microscopy, including scanning tunneling microscopy, atomic force microscopy and one that I have discussed in class the near-field scanning optical microscopy (NSOM).
