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). Veeco Instruments by the way is currently the largest commercial supplier of AFMs and other scanning probe instruments. Download this document, and read and study it this week. While all of the document is informative, you should particularly read and study pages 1-11 and pages 20-28.

Unformatted text preview: In addition, go to the web site which also provides a different brief tutorial on the basics and applications of atomic force microscopy, and also on the scanning near field optical microscope (SNOM) which is the same as the NSOM referred to above. This latter instrument was co-invented at Cornell and at the IBM laboratory in Zurich Switzerland in the 1980s. Each section in the tutorial is a page or two in length. Read and study all sections. You will be responsible for the material covered in the Veeco document and in the web article for the mid-term exam....

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
