Abstract
The atomic force microscope (AFM), a prominent member of the new class of scanning near-field microscopes, has become a standard instrument to image the topography of surfaces with high resolution. In addition, the AFM is more and more used to study other local surface properties, like the local surface charge density, the surface energy, or viscoelastic properties. Beside its analytical capabilities, surfaces can be modified with the AFM tip. Examples of all three applications are given and future possibilities are discussed.
