Since the scanning tunneling microscope was invented in the early 1980s, the field of microscopic imaging has blossomed in many nontraditional ways. Nearly 400 years of steady evolution of optical microscopy and five decades of progress in the field of electron microscopy failed to prepare the technical world for the avalanche of new techniques. Today scanning probe microscopy encompasses a wide variety of profiling methodologies that leverage physical interactions to characterize surface topographies in novel ways. In the words of James K. Gimzewski, a pioneer in the field, the principle...Read full article
