Paper Abstract

In this paper we present an overview of the state of the art in SXM with emphasis on image processing techniques for SXM. We outline the principle of operation of different scanning probe microscopes. Issues related to sensor technology are discussed. Commercially available scanning probe microscopes are listed and their features summarized. We review in detail the image processing work that has been done to date in relation to SXM and raise relevant issues. Existing and potential applications of SXM are discussed. Finally, we point out directions for future research in image processing related to SXM.
