Scanning Probe Microscopy and Spectroscopy: Methods and Applications by Roland Wiesendanger



The investigation and manipulation of matter on the atomic scale have been revolutionized by scanning tunneling microscopy and related scanning probe techniques. This book is the first to provide a clear and comprehensive introduction to this subject. Beginning with the theoretical background of scanning tunneling microscopy, the design and instrumentation of practical STM and associated systems are described in detail, including topographic imaging, local tunneling barrier height measurements, tunneling spectroscopy, and local potentiometry. A treatment of the experimental techniques used in scanning force microscopy and other scanning probe techniques rounds out this section. The second part discusses representative applications of these techniques in fields such as condensed matter physics, chemistry, materials science, biology, and nanotechnology, so this book will be extremely valuable to upper-division students and researchers in these areas.

This book is one of the principal lectures that every research need to understand "Scanning probe apparatus". Its content refer all the different areas of actual interest and the different type of measurements that actually could be make with this type of system. This book is more than a simple introduction in this wonderful area of physics. For all this reasons I thing that is one of the most important books that every research have to read.

The price of this paperback of SPM book is very good compared to that of the hardcover. However, the print quality is poor. In some of the images you barely see the featutres they talk about in the book. I am a SPM user so this is really bothering me. The SPM imagaes in this book are not very informative due to the poor print quality. Maybe the hardcover one has better print quality.
