DiATOME AFM Diamond Knives

  • Muscle of cat's mite Otodectes cynotis
    AFM amplitude image of the muscle of cat's mite Otodectes cynotis. The contrast covers amplitude variation in the 1-3nm range. Size of the whole image equals 4.6microns. Nadejda Borisovna Matsko, Institut für angewandte Physik, ETH Zürich.
  • Blend of two SBS block copolymers
    Morphology of a blend of two SBS block copolymers with different chain-architecture. AFM tapping mode, phase image, image size = 3x3µm. Rameshwar Adhikari, Institut für Werkstoffwissenschaft, Martin-Luther-Universität, Halle-Wittenberg.
  • polyethylene
    Top-view, light shaded AFM image of a cryomicrotomed surface of ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene. The arrows indicate zones with lamellae splitting. P.H.
