The volumes XI, XII and XIII learn the actual and technical origin for fresh growth in utilized scanning probe thoughts. the 1st quantity got here out in January 2004, the second one to fourth volumes in early 2006 and the 5th to 7th volumes in overdue 2006. the sector is progressing so quick that there's a want for a collection of volumes each 12 to 18 months to catch most recent advancements. those volumes represent a well timed entire assessment of SPM purposes. After introducing scanning probe microscopy, together with sensor expertise and tip characterization, chapters on use in quite a few commercial functions are offered. business functions span topographic and dynamical floor experiences of thin-film semiconductors, polymers, paper, ceramics, and magnetic and organic fabrics. The chapters were written through prime researchers and alertness scientists from world wide and from numerous industries to supply a broader viewpoint.

Example text

The location and thickness of the grease was demonstrated, showing its non-uniform distribution over the elytra surface. The grease residues also remain on the top of the hexagonal cells in the form of patches, whereas the rest runs down the curvature and accumulates within the pores. Also, grease accumulation between the cells is clearly visible. The data, obtained with the AFM, were partly proven with the use of Cryo-SEM, which supported the presence and geometry of the grease layer. These data, providing an important extension to the previous data of chemical analyses, were obtained for the first time with each of both microscopy methods.

Peisker · S. Gorb Abstract. Insects and spiders are supposed to release a greasy layer on their body surface, which may be involved in chemical and physical interactions between the organisms and their environment. In mating events, males frequently adhere to the female’s dorsal body site by means of their feet, whereas grease should play an important role at the feet-attachment substrate interface. The properties and thickness of epicuticular grease have been diversely reported, but no definite visualizations and measurements have been previously carried out.
