Ultrasharp Microscope Probes
Added Jul 17, 2012 | Rate View top rated
Joseph Lyding, Professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois, has recently developed a new method for sharpening probes for Scan Probe Microscopes. Using ions to sharpen the tip to an atomic level, the ultrasharp probes allow for an extremely high, atomic resolution in the microscope's images. | commented on August 12, 2012
Now can't you also atomically sharpen the probe by using electrolysis. I believe that electroplating is capable of plating atoms thick layers couldn't it also erode the tip (sharpen) atomic layers at a time.
