Repeated single point atomic defect on calcite imaged with blueDrive

blueDrive maintains atomic resolution even running unattended overnight 

These atomic-resolution images of mica in 1 M CsCl solution are a testament to blueDrive's stability. After setting up the experiment, the AFM was left unattended overnight while data was acquired continuously. In the morning, the atomic lattice could still be clearly observed. The atomic point defect seen in the last image suggests that the integrity of the AFM tip was maintained while scanning throughout the night. These images were taken on a Cypher ES using an ArrowUHF cantilever in tapping mode. Image size 40 x 20 nm.
