Contact Mode

Contact Mode is a standard AFM mode that provides the base for a host of other AFM modes. Contact mode uses a microfabricated AFM tip mounted on a cantilever. The AFM tip and sample are in constant contact during scanning. The detector signal measures cantilever deflection in Z. The output signal adjusts the Z position of the scanner to maintain the deflection setpoint when in feedback mode.
