The first book to summarize the applications of CAFM as the most important method in the study of electronic properties of materials and devices at the nanoscale.
To provide a global perspective, the chapters are written by leading researchers and application scientists from all over the world and cover novel strategies, configurations and setups where new information will be obtained with the help of CAFM.
With its substantial content and logical structure, this is a valuable reference for researchers working with CAFM or planning to use it in their own fields of research.

Dr. Lanza has published more than 60 publications, most of them using the CAFM to study the nanoelectronic properties of different materials and devices. Furthermore, he developed different setups to enhance the capabilities of the CAFM, including an environmental chamber and ultra durable graphene-coated probe tips. Currently his research group is focused on the nanoscale electrical characterization of different devices, including field effect transistors, non-volatile memories and solar cells.
