    • 3D Force field spectroscopy 

      Baykara, Mehmet Z.; Schwarz, U. D. (Springer, Cham, 2015)
      With recent advances in instrumentation and experimental methodology, noncontact atomic force microscopy is now being frequently used to measure the atomic-scale interactions acting between a sharp probe tip and surfaces ...
    • Atomic force microscopy: Methods and applications 

      Baykara, Mehmet Z.; Schwarz, U. D. (Elsevier, 2017)
      This chapter provides an overview of atomic force microscopy, covering the fundamental aspects of the associated instrumentation and methodology as well as representative results from the literature highlighting a variety ...
    • Low-temperature scanning probe microscopy 

      Baykara, Mehmet Z.; Morgenstern, M.; Schwarz, A.; Schwarz, U. D. (Springer, 2017)
      This chapter is dedicated to scanning probe microscopy (SPM ) operated at cryogenic temperatures, where the more fundamental aspects of phenomena important in the fields of nanoscience and nanotechnology can be investigated ...
    • Noncontact atomic force microscopy for atomic-scale characterization of material surfaces 

      Baykara, Mehmet Z. (Springer, 2015)
      Among the large variety of scanning probe microscopy techniques, noncontact atomic force microscopy (NC-AFM) stands out with its capability of atomic-resolution imaging and spectroscopy measurements on conducting, ...
    • Structural lubricity under ambient conditions 

      Cihan, Ebru; İpek, Semran; Durgun, Engin; Baykara, Mehmet Z. (Nature Publishing Group, 2016)
      Despite its fundamental importance, physical mechanisms that govern friction are poorly understood. While a state of ultra-low friction, termed structural lubricity, is expected for any clean, atomically flat interface ...
    • Structure and nanotribology of thermally deposited gold nanoparticles on graphite 

      Cihan, Ebru; Özoğul, Alper; Baykara, Mehmet Z. (Elsevier, 2015)
      We present experiments involving the structural and frictional characterization of gold nanoparticles (AuNP) thermally deposited on highly oriented pyrolytic graphite (HOPG). The effect of thermal deposition amount, as ...
