Tapping Mode

Tapping Mode AFM, the most commonly used of all AFM modes, maps topography by lightly tapping the surface with an oscillating probe tip.  The cantilever’s oscillation amplitude changes with sample surface topography, and the topography image is obtained by monitoring these changes and closing the z feedback loop to minimize them.
