By Kunio Takeyasu

Recent advancements in atomic strength microscopy (AFM) were complete via quite a few technical and instrumental concepts, together with high-resolution and popularity imaging expertise less than physiological stipulations, fast-scanning AFM, and common equipment for cantilever amendment and strength size. a majority of these strategies are actually hugely robust not just in fabric sciences but in addition in simple organic sciences. there are lots of nanotechnology books that concentrate on fabrics, tools, and purposes in engineering and medication, yet just a couple of of them are directed towards uncomplicated organic sciences. This publication attempts to bridge this gap.


Edited via a well-liked researcher, this quantity offers an summary of contemporary AFM applied sciences: the fundamental AFM protocols partly I, newly constructed applied sciences partly II, and the newest functions of AFM applied sciences in organic sciences in components III and IV. The chapters are contributed through a few of the prime scientists within the box of nanobiology.
