The spatial resolution of atomic force microscopy (AFM) can be drastically increased by terminating the tip with a single CO molecule. However, the CO molecule is not stiff, and lateral forces, such as those around the sides of molecules, distort images. This issue begs a larger question of how AFM can probe structures that are laterally weak. Lateral force microscopy (LFM) can probe lateral ...
