Image Quality and PeakForce QNM

Oct 2-3, 2018 | Billerica, MA

Tuesday - Wednesday, October 2 - 3, 2018
Billerica, MA

DAY 1 | Image Quality

DAY 2 | PeakForce-QNM

Course Objectives

In this class, we will talk about image quality and PeakForce Quantitative Nanomechanical Mapping (PF-QNM).

The 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 also will be instruction on how to optimize the scanning parameters to improve the image quality.

This session will discuss common imaging artifacts and how to recognize and prevent them.

In the PeakForce QNM session, we will talk about theory, procedure, and offline analysis of force curves, including various contact mechanics theories for material modulus measurement with AFM. This session also includes PeakForce QNM theory, detailed QNM calibration procedures, and techniques for improving QNM accuracy.
