Physics (including Earth and space sciences),
AFM atomic force microscopy
3. Explain the transverse piezoelectric effect.
4. Design a monolithic z-tube scanner (using real materials – cite sources) suitable for generating +/- 1 micron displacements at 200V. What would the max scan size be for an x-y scanner (see links below for hints).
5. Watch the Asylum video and explain difference between piezo tubes and piezo stacks.
6. Read, e.g., Viani et al., Rev. Sci. Inst. 70, 4300 (1999), and explain the advantages of short cantilevers and the relation between scanning speed and Q – cite sources.
