ABSTRACT
Scanning Probe Recognition Microscopy is a new scanning probe microscopy technique
which enables selective scanning along individual nanofibers within a tissue scaffold. The
Scanning Probe Recognition Microscopy system can automatically detect the nanofiber region of
interest and collect a series of force curves and surface roughness measurements inside just this
region, which saves operation time. More importantly, the nanofibers are curved surfaces while
conventional AFM surface roughness and elasticity analyses are designed for flat surfaces.
