|This module focuses on scanning probe microscopes (SPM) as powerful tools to both explore and further manipulate the nanoworld. The ability of scanning probe techniques to visualize surfaces in real space and to characterize and even trigger physical and chemical processes on the atomic level renders invaluable to physics, chemistry, materials science, and biology. Specifically, this course will cover the following methods: Scanning tunneling microscopy (and spectroscopy) Atomic force microscopy (and spectroscopy) Scanning near-field optical microscopyThe underlying fundamental principles of the methodology and the experimental implementation of each technique is studied. Particular emphasis will be put on seminal experimental studies highlighting the potential of scanning probe microscopy to unveil nanoscale phenomena. We will learn on the application of SPM to obtain structural, electronic, magnetic, chemical and mechanical characterization of surfaces and surface nanostructures with spatiotemporal resolution. Furthermore, we will see how SPM can be used as a bottom up nanotechnology method via controlled manipulation of individual atoms and molecules.
