The first textbook on HS-AFM, “High-Speed Atomic Force Microscopy in Biology”, has just been published!

Professor Toshio Ando, Distinguished Professor of Kanazawa University, has published “High-Speed Atomic Force Microscopy in Biology” with Springer Nature Publishing. It is the first ‘textbook’ of HS-AFM, providing a comprehensive description of the principles and techniques of High-Speed Atomic Force Microscopy (HS-AFM).

Numerous examples of HS-AFM studies on proteins in this book demonstrate how to apply this new form of microscopy to specific biological problems. And the instrumentation techniques detailed in Chapter 4 will be helpful for engineers and scientists who want to develop the next generation of high-speed scanning probe microscopes for biology. These are of great value to a wide range of people, from students and researchers new to HS-AFM to engineers and researchers planning the development of the next generation of Bio-SPM.
