About this Book

Well-structured and adopting a pedagogical approach, this self-contained monograph covers the fundamentals of scanning probe microscopy,
showing how to use the techniques for investigating physical and chemical properties on the nanoscale and how they can be used for a wide
range of soft materials. It concludes with a section on the latest techniques in nanomanipulation and patterning.

This first book to focus on the applications is a must-have for both newcomers and established researchers using scanning probe microscopy
in soft matter research.
