The scanning probe microscopy ?eld has been quickly increasing. it's a challenging activity to assemble a well timed evaluation of this ?eld with an emphasis on technical dev- opments and commercial purposes. It turned glaring whereas modifying Vols. I–IV that an enormous variety of technical and applicational features are current and speedily - veloping all over the world. contemplating the luck of Vols. I–IV and the truth that additional colleagues from prime laboratories have been able to give a contribution their most modern achie- ments, we determined to extend the sequence with articles touching ?elds no longer coated within the earlier volumes. The reaction and aid of our colleagues have been first-class, making it attainable to edit one other 3 volumes of the sequence. not like to- cal convention lawsuits, the utilized scanning probe tools intend to provide an summary of contemporary advancements as a compendium for either functional functions and up to date uncomplicated learn effects, and novel technical advancements with recognize to instrumentation and probes. the current volumes hide 3 major components: novel probes and methods (Vol. V), charactarization (Vol. VI), and biomimetics and commercial functions (Vol. VII). quantity V comprises an summary of probe and sensor applied sciences together with built-in cantilever options, electrostatic microscanners, low-noise tools and enhanced dynamic strength microscopy innovations, high-resonance dynamic strength - croscopy and the torsional resonance approach, modelling of tip cantilever structures, scanning probe tools, ways for elasticity and adhesion measurements at the nanometer scale in addition to optical functions of scanning probe concepts in line with near?eld Raman spectroscopy and imaging.
