The scanning probe microscopy ?eld has been speedily increasing. it's a hard job to gather a well timed evaluation of this ?eld with an emphasis on technical dev- opments and commercial purposes. It grew to become obvious whereas enhancing Vols. I–IV that an enormous variety of technical and applicational facets are current and quickly - veloping world wide. contemplating the good fortune of Vols. I–IV and the truth that extra colleagues from top laboratories have been able to give a contribution their most modern achie- ments, we determined to extend the sequence with articles touching ?elds now not lined 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. unlike to- cal convention complaints, the utilized scanning probe tools intend to offer an outline of contemporary advancements as a compendium for either useful purposes and up to date simple study effects, and novel technical advancements with appreciate to instrumentation and probes. the current volumes hide 3 major parts: novel probes and methods (Vol. V), charactarization (Vol. VI), and biomimetics and commercial purposes (Vol. VII). quantity V comprises an summary of probe and sensor applied sciences together with built-in cantilever techniques, electrostatic microscanners, low-noise equipment and better dynamic strength microscopy strategies, high-resonance dynamic strength - croscopy and the torsional resonance procedure, modelling of tip cantilever structures, scanning probe tools, methods for elasticity and adhesion measurements at the nanometer scale in addition to optical functions of scanning probe concepts in accordance with near?eld Raman spectroscopy and imaging.
