Abstract:

The following is a final report on our work in the field of Scanning Probe Microscopy SPM, which has been funded by the AFOSR under Contract F49620-92-J-0164. The AFOSR funding was instrumental in the establishment of a multi-lab facility at the Optical Sciences Center, which performs research in SPM using two ultrahigh vacuum UHV STM facilities, and several Atomic Force Microscopy AFM facilities. The fabrication and characterization work performed in the SPM Laboratory is supplemented by infrared IR spectroscopy, high resolution transmission electron microscpy HRTEM, and scanning electron microscopy SEM, available in other departments on campus. The report covers the following areas 1 GaAs and CdSe Structures, 2 Optical Interactions on a nm and nsec Scales, 3 Fullerenes on Gold, 4 Fullerenes on MoS2, 5 Fullerenes on Si, 6 SiC, 7 Nanotubes, 8 Scanning Force Microscopy, and 9 Biology. jg
