13 Need of probe-sample distance regulation Lateral scanning Scan direction Probe How to avoid crashing!!! Probe-sample distance How to automatically control the probe s vertical position? Near-Field SPIE Optics Microscopy East 2005 Group PSU Near-Field Microscopy Group Boston, MA

14 STRATEGY Probe is set to perform lateral oscillation (by an external device.) It is observed that the amplitude A of the lateral oscillations are damped when the probe s tip is in the proximity (~20 nm) to the sample s surface. Approach Curves Tip approaches the sample A(z) z Normalized A (z) Hydrophobic sample Hydrophilic sample S A M P L E (10) (20) (30) (40) Probe-sample distance Z (nm) Amplitude of lateral oscillations A decreases with distance z Near-Field SPIE Optics Microscopy East 2005 Group PSU Near-Field Microscopy Group Boston, MA

15 Damping contamination layer (hypothesis) Contamination Layer 20 nm TF V d A S A M P L E z Shear-force mechanism Hypothesis: The damping effect of the contamination layer should produce a distance dependence on the probe s amplitude of oscillations. That is: A = A(z) Near-Field SPIE Optics Microscopy East 2005 Group PSU Near-Field Microscopy Group Boston, MA
