Method For Measuring The Force Interaction That Is Caused By A Sample


Disclosed is a method for measuring the force interaction caused by a sample, wherein a bias voltage, with respect to the sample, is applied between a tip, and the tip is guided at such a small distance to the sample that a measurable current flows between the tip and the sample, and a sensor and signal converter S, which changes the current flowing through the tip-sample contact depending on the intensity of the force interaction, is formed and used in the region of the force interaction. A scanning tunneling microscope therefor is disclosed.
