This book provides a complete set of educational models describing the physical phenomena associated with scanning tunneling microscopy, atomic force microscopy, and related technologies. It is both a professional reference and an advanced-level text, beginning with basics and moving on to the latest techniques, experiments, and theory.
The second edition features not only an accompanying CD-ROM with Mathematica code for all the examples, but also a new applications section, reflecting the many recent breakthroughs in the field. Contents
