In force measurement, AFMs can be used to measure the forces between the probe and the sample as a function of their mutual separation. For imaging, the reaction of the probe to the forces that the sample imposes on it can be used to form an image of the three-dimensional shape topography of a sample surface at a high resolution.
This is achieved by raster scanning the position of the sample with respect to the tip and recording the height of the probe that corresponds to a constant probe-sample interaction see section topographic imaging in AFM for more details.
The surface topography is commonly displayed as a pseudocolor plot. In manipulation, the forces between tip and sample can also be used to change the properties of the sample in a controlled way. Examples of this include atomic manipulation, scanning probe lithography and local stimulation of cells.
Simultaneous with the acquisition of topographical images, other properties of the sample can be measured locally and displayed as an image, often with similarly high resolution. Examples of such properties are mechanical properties like stiffness or adhesion strength and electrical properties such as conductivity or surface potential.
Other microscopy technologies[ edit ] The major difference between atomic force microscopy and competing technologies such as optical microscopy and electron microscopy is that AFM does not use lenses or beam irradiation. Therefore, it does not suffer from a limitation in spatial resolution due to diffraction and aberration, and preparing a space for guiding the beam by creating a vacuum and staining the sample are not necessary.
Configuration[ edit ] Fig. Coordinate directions are defined by the coordinate system 0. Typical configuration of an AFM. Support for cantilever, 3: Piezoelectric element to oscillate cantilever at its eigen frequency.
Tip Fixed to open end of a cantilever, acts as the probe5: Detector of deflection and motion of the cantilever, 6: Sample to be measured by AFM, 7: The small spring-like cantilever 1 is carried by the support 2.
Optionally, a piezoelectric element typically made of a ceramic material 3 oscillates the cantilever 1. The sharp tip 4 is fixed to the free end of the cantilever 1.
The detector 5 records the deflection and motion of the cantilever 1.
The sample 6 is mounted on the sample stage 8. An xyz drive 7 permits to displace the sample 6 and the sample stage 8 in x, y, and z directions with respect to the tip apex 4. Controllers and plotter are not shown in Fig. According to the configuration described above, the interaction between tip and sample, which can be an atomic scale phenomenon, is transduced into changes of the motion of cantilever which is a macro scale phenomenon.
Several different aspects of the cantilever motion can be used to quantify the interaction between the tip and sample, most commonly the value of the deflection, the amplitude of an imposed oscillation of the cantilever, or the shift in resonance frequency of the cantilever see section Imaging Modes.
Detector[ edit ] The detector 5 of AFM measures the deflection displacement with respect to the equilibrium position of the cantilever and converts it into an electrical signal. The intensity of this signal will be proportional to the displacement of the cantilever.
Various methods of detection can be used, e. Image formation[ edit ] Note: When using the AFM to image a sample, the tip is brought into contact with the sample, and the sample is raster scanned along an x-y grid fig 4. Most commonly, an electronic feedback loop is employed to keep the probe-sample force constant during scanning.
This feedback loop has the cantilever deflection as input, and its output controls the distance along the z axis between the probe support 2 in fig. As long as the tip remains in contact with the sample, and the sample is scanned in the x-y plane, height variations in the sample will change the deflection of the cantilever.
The feedback then adjusts the height of the probe support so that the deflection is restored to a user-defined value the setpoint. A properly adjusted feedback loop adjusts the support-sample separation continuously during the scanning motion, such that the deflection remains approximately constant.
In this situation, the feedback output equals the sample surface topography to within a small error. Historically, a different operation method has been used, in which the sample-probe support distance is kept constant and not controlled by a feedback servo mechanism.
As long as the tip is in contact with the sample, the deflection then corresponds to surface topography. The main reason this method is not very popular anymore, is that the forces between tip and sample are not controlled, which can lead to forces high enough to damage the tip or the sample.
This reveals the small tracking error of the feedback, and can sometimes reveal features that the feedback was not able to adjust for.motion, known as dynamic force analysis, will be discussed. Fundamentals Force Vector A force that acts on a point of a link carries the index of the point.
