AFM is a scanning probe microscopy (SPM), used for imaging the sample surface in 3D down to the nanometer range, in air or in liquids (in a fluid cell). Different scanning techniques are available, such as, tapping, contact and non-contact AFM modes, magnetic force microscopy (MFM), and phase imaging.
