In TappingMode, the probe is oscillated up and down at its resonant frequency while its amplitude and phase are monitored. In this case, fully tighten both laser aiming screws CWthen unscrew CCW both screws one full turn.

Trace Retrace Z Range At operating Setpoint 2 the cantilever amplitude builds up biosope rapidly. The user is encouraged to review section 5. The display monitor also presents a linear scale of the Z piezo voltage. Do not stare into beam. The tip will have to be recentered each time that it is replaced. Piezoelectric transducers have a characteristic response time to the feedback voltage applied.

Although a great deal can be accomplished from this starting point, there is far more to the operation of the AFM.

Install the protective skirt The protective skirt is a rubber seal used to protect the SPM scanner tube from liquids.

The drawback is that the system takes longer to recover from a given perturbation in the amplitude. Laser Diode Stage— A kinematic tilt stage is used to position the laser beam onto the cantilever. The table should be pulled away from walls so that cables will not be pinched. Introduction Chapters 12 and 13 are complementary and should be read together. The SPM head may be moved towards the sample or mwnual from the sample with an automated and motorized translation stage. This indicates that the cantilever is being damped by air trapped between the ,anual and sample surface not in contact with the actual, solid surface —this is a false engagement condition.

Chapter 14 discusses calibration procedures used to ensure that image dimensions are truly represented. Patents covering the technology developed in this head are pending. Interleaved scanning and LiftMode allow side-by-side measurements with different scan parameters or even different scan modes. The chemically doped tip measures chemical bonding forces on sample surface, images receptor sites on biological membranes, etc. Preparation Prior to Imaging 8.


Do not attempt to set Interleave mode to Enabled at this point. Because the mabual describes a high-frequency e. The user is encouraged to review these descriptions. Microscope Head The Dimension SPM head provides accurate imaging of a stationary sample while scanning the integrated detector probe assembly above the sample.


The tip-sample separation is typically maintained at several atomic diameters, or about 10 angstroms.

This section provides a brief description of some of the more commonly used parameters. After exiting, if the image bioecope good, the force can be decreased further by lowering the Setpoint in small increments until the cantilever pulls off.

This allows the system to settle down and bloscope data. Mmanual commands are only initiated by clicking with the mouse. On the other hand, if there is little or no wind, the balloon may achieve a closer tracking of the terrain. Although LookAhead gain is relatively useless for random surfaces, it is a tremendous help on regular surfaces. If dust accumulates on the top surface, the vacuum system will not seal and samples will not be held tightly.

The tip holder on the microscope is easily changed for different operating modes. The scan rate should be set below 2 Hz.

Be aware of clearances between the AFM probe and the top of the sample whenever using the X-Y manipulator see Figure 3.
