1307.7679 (Venkat Chandrasekhar et al.)

A real-time software simulator for scanning force microscopy    [PDF]

Venkat Chandrasekhar, Manan Mehta
We describe software that simulates the hardware of a scanning force microscope. The essential feature of the software is its real-time response, which is critical for mimicking the behavior of real scanning probe hardware. The simulator runs on an open-source real time Linux kernel, and can be used to test scanning probe microscope control software as well as theoretical models of different types of scanning probe microscopes. We describe the implementation of a tuning-fork based atomic force microscope and a dc electrostatic force microscope, and present representative images obtained from these models.
