3. Scanning probe microscope

3.1. allows scientists to

3.1.1. mage, characterize and even manipulate material structures at exceedingly small scales including features of atomic proportions.

3.2. The resolution of the microscopes is not limited by diffraction, but only by the size of the probe-sample interaction volume (i.e., point spread function), which can be as small as a few picometres.

3.3. The detailed shape of the scanning tip is sometimes difficult to determine. Its effect on the resulting data is particularly noticeable if the specimen varies greatly in height over lateral distances of 10 nm or less.

4. Definition

4.1. An optical instrument that uses a lens or a combination of lenses to produce magnified images of small objects, especially of objects too small to be seen by the unaided eye.
