Three‐dimensional probe reconstruction for atomic force microscopy
Colloidal gold particles are used as hard, spherical imaging targets to assist in the three‐dimensional reconstruction of the atomic force probe apex. Probe reconstructions are shown to be accurate to 1 nm resolution and dynamically change as the sample is scanned, emphasizing the utility of colloidal gold particles as in situ calibration standards for image reconstruction of a coadsorbed specimen.
