Comparison between different ANM technologies features.

Method Material Speed Resolution
DPN From small organic molecules to organic and biological polymers and from colloidal particles to metal ions and sols Increased with the number of probes 15 nm resolution on single crystal surfaces, 50 nm on polycrystalline surfaces
EHD Metal nano-particles, polymers, block copolymers 80 mm/s 10 nm
DLW Polymers, metals 100 µm/s 65 nm, 22 nm
STM Single atoms (e.g., Xe) <1 nm/s Atomic
AFM Single atoms (e.g., Sn), any nano-scale object (e.g., CNTs, nano-particles) <10 nm/s Atomic
