thumbnail image: Atomic Force Microscopy in Liquid: Biological Applications

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