The scope of this helpdesk is to answer subject related queries which are relevant to understanding concepts and solving problems.
Scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) is a powerful technique for viewing surfaces at the atomic level.
The atomic force microscope (AFM) or scanning force microscope (SFM) is a very high-resolution type of scanning probe microscopy, with demonstrated resolution of fractions of a nanometer, more than 1000 times better than the optical diffraction limit.
