Abstract

In this thesis, a new atomic force microscope capable of measuring in liquid and air has been introduced. The highly improved design of the instrument eliminates some of the technical problems which are occurred before. The instrument makes use of the small amplitude AC-Mode technique to detect the interaction forces between the tip and the surface. Some results of initial test scans of the instrument are displayed.
