DAY 1 | Imaging Quality

DAY 2 | Fluid Imaging

DAY 3 | Image Processing

Course Objectives

In this class, we will talk about image quality and fluid imaging.


Image quality session will cover in depth theory of contact mode, Tapping Mode, and PeakForce Tapping with ScanAsyst, along with a discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of each mode. There will also be instruction on how to optimize the scanning parameters to improve image quality. This session will discuss common imaging artifacts and how to recognize and prevent them.


In the fluid imaging session, we will discuss different ways of setting up the fluid experiment and how to optimize scanning parameters with typical samples. We will focus on how to achieve high resolution imaging in fluid, e.g. atomic resolution on Calcite with PeakForce Tapping mode in fluid.


We will close with a session discussing image processing using Nanoscope Analysis.
