Title:
The FAST module: An add-on unit for driving commercial scanning probe microscopes at video rate and beyond 
Abstract:
We present the design and the performance of the FAST (Fast Acquisition of SPM Timeseries) module, an add-on instrument that can drive com. scanning probe microscopes (SPM) at and beyond video rate image frequencies. In the design of this module, we adopted and integrated several tech. solns. previously proposed by different groups in order to overcome the problems encountered when driving SPMs at high scanning frequencies. The fast probe motion control and signal acquisition are implemented in...    »
