Abstract

Images of graphite and RuCl3 show that the atomic force microscope (AFM) is capable of imaging rigid samples with atomic resolution. Images of photographic film showing the emulsion demonstrate the potential of the microscope for industrial quality control. An image of a stoma on a leaf shows that the microscope is gentle enough not to damage surfaces, even of soft biological samples.
