"Scanning Probe Microscopy - at the Shopping Mall"
Talk Presented to State Microscopical Society of Illinois, 1996.

Dr. Donald A. Chernoff will present a general interest lecture on applications of Scanning Probe Microscopy.

Title: Scanning Probe Microscopy - at the Shopping Mall (see abstract below)


McCrone Research Institute
2820 S. Michigan Ave.
Chicago, Illinois

Host: State Microscopical Society of Illinois
Date: Friday, Sept. 20, 1996
Time: Dinner is 6PM. Lecture is 7PM.
A light dinner (pizza and refreshments) will be served at 6PM. If interested in dinner, please phone Lori Krumick at McCrone by Wednesday, September 18 to make a reservation (cost is about $6).


All forms of microscopy touch our daily lives by supporting manufacturing, engineering and research. The Scanning Tunneling Microscope originally gained attention as a simple device for imaging atoms. From that exotic beginning, there has grown a family of Scanning Probe Microscopes. These instruments can operate in air, in liquid and in vacuum. They record 3-dimensional topography, magnetic and electric fields, friction, adhesion, stiffness, optical spectra and more. This talk presents applications of Scanning Probe Microscopy to a variety of materials and devices used in consumer products, including electronics, data storage, food packaging and engines.
