Abstract

Scanning probe techniques (SPM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM) in particular were used to study organic structures at the atomic and molecular level. Organic interfaces are of prime importance to several technological applications, such as boundary lubrication and biosensors development. Because these applications rely on molecular-scale recognition and control a fundamental, molecular-level understanding of their structural and physical-chemical properties is indispensable.
