Nanoanalytical Tools

A wide range of applications use the methods described in this section as nanoanalytical tools. This field is extending rapidly and new applications and methods are developed constantly. A short description will be given of the methods and the parameters investigated with them. The possible areas of application and examples are given in Section 4. Particularly, scanning force microscopy (SFM) is stressed which has proven to be a valuable and easy to handle method for studies on biomaterials. Additional advantages can be found in the nondestroying operation which is applicable under ambient conditions. Experimental setups revealing nanometer resolution in only one dimension are discussed at the end of this section.
