Scanning Probe Microscope Operation

Scanning Probe Microscopes (SPM's) include Atomic Force Microscopes (AFM's) and Scanning Tunneling Microscopes (STM's or STEM's). They are the only instruments in widespread use that can actually "see" single atoms! You can skim this resource quickly to learn the general concepts of SPM's, or you can read carefully and almost be ready to operate one!
