We have outstanding videos that explain how the Instruments work. Click on the links below to see the animations for specific instruments.
- Scanning Electron Microscope: This page features a series of videos showing the working of a general SEM. The video series, titled "How SEMs Work" show the different components of the tool and then, finally, puts them all together to show how the SEM functions with all these units.
- Atomic Force Microscope: Visit this page to see simulations of how the different AFM modes (namely static mode and dynamic mode) work.
The lego SPM video gives a macroscale view of how the AFM functions and sometimes provides a good understanding to students about the working principle.
