|Project description:||The objective of project NANOFORCE is to perform realistic modelling of the interaction between the tip and sample of the dynamic scanning force microscope (DSFM) by means of extensive supercomputer simulations. This intention is motivated by experimental activities of the partners of our project in Germany. The project concentrates on chemical short-range interactions. The necessity of employing quantum mechanics complicates the task considerably. The results are inevitable for improving the performance of DSFM with intention of a further extension of its potentials as a key technique for visualizing any surface or nanostructure on the atomic scale. In addition to to the mode of visualization by frequancy modulation we will study also the dissipation mode as well as the issues of chemical and spin resolution. The project has ambitions to reveal novel applications of DSFM as a tool for micromechanics, mechanochemistry and nanofabrication. The project should contribute to acquiring the leading position of Europe in DSFM.|
