This lecture is part of the ICAM webinar series

Recent advances in the nanoscale probing of materials have opened up a whole host of opportunities previously only dreamed of. Coupled together with the ability to fabricate or engineer surfaces, materials and devices, we have a highly fertile space to play with.

In this webinar, Dr Durkan will look at the developments in scanning-probe microscopy-based tools used to both fabricate and characterize nanostructures, with a particular emphasis on spatial resolution, quantitative property mapping, functional materials, ultimate limits and up-and-coming techniques that will prove useful from the BP-ICAM perspective.

Starting from the Scanning Tunneling microscope (STM), which offers useful insights into the structure of various species and how they interact with surfaces, the webinar will then move to the Atomic Force Microscope (AFM), which has the potential to provide us with bond-level resolution as well as quantitative mechanical and chemical property mapping. Finally, Dr Durkan will briefly look at some of the techniques used to engineer surfaces at the nanoscale.
