About 40 % of current atomic force microscopy (AFM) research isperformed in liquids, making liquid-based AFM a rapidly growingand
important tool for the study of biological materials. This bookfocuses on the underlying principles and experimental aspects ofAFM under
liquid, with an easy-to-follow organization intended for new AFMscientists. The book also serves as an up-to-date review of new AFMtechniques developed especially for biological samples.
Aimed at physicists, materials scientists, biologists, analyticalchemists, and medicinal chemists. An ideal reference book forlibraries.
