Nanosurf AFM



An atomic force microscope (AFM) can resolve features down to 1 nm or below. 

AFM's work by moving a tip across the surface of a sample and measuring the deflections of the tip though a feedback loop.

The famous IBM Quantum Corral and the video A Boy and His Atom where created using an instrument similar to an AFM.
