Applied Scanning Probe Methods XIII: Biomimetics and by D. Voigt, H. Peisker, S. Gorb (auth.), Bharat Bhushan,

By D. Voigt, H. Peisker, S. Gorb (auth.), Bharat Bhushan, Harald Fuchs (eds.)

The volumes XI, XII and XIII study the actual and technical starting place for fresh growth in utilized scanning probe recommendations. the 1st quantity got here out in January 2004, the second one to fourth volumes in early 2006 and the 5th to 7th volumes in overdue 2006. the sector is progressing so quick that there's a want for a suite of volumes each 12 to 18 months to seize most recent advancements. those volumes represent a well timed entire evaluation of SPM purposes.

After introducing scanning probe microscopy, together with sensor expertise and tip characterization, chapters on use in a variety of commercial purposes are offered. commercial functions span topographic and dynamical floor experiences of thin-film semiconductors, polymers, paper, ceramics, and magnetic and organic fabrics.

The chapters were written via best researchers and alertness scientists from around the world and from a number of industries to supply a broader perspective.

At higher magnification, an amorphous layer smeared over the surface can be detected (Fig. 2D). This layer often covers small pores and gaps between hexagons and thus makes the surface uniformly smooth. The gathered AFM tapping-mode height images of fresh samples provided 3D information about hexagonal cells at the nanoscale (Fig. 3). However, no grease was visible. Fig. 2.

Previously, this method has been successfully applied for visualization of tarsal adhesive fluid in flies [38]. Pieces of elytra from live, anaesthetized beetles were cut off with a fine knife, mounted on metal holders, frozen on a cryo-stage at −140 ◦ C, sputter-coated with gold-palladium (3 nm) in the preparation chamber, and examined in the SEM at −120 ◦ C and with an accelerating voltage of 5 kV.
