Atomic force microscopy is best known for its powerful imaging capabilities. Surfaces are imaged with resolution down to the molecular level with capability to access 100 x 100 micron field of view. The instrument can operate in ambient, liquid, and vacuum environments and at over a temperature range from -30 degrees to + 100 degrees C.
