Fusion of biological tissues through direct and indirect heating is a growing area of medical research, yet there are still major gaps in understanding this procedure. Several companies have developed devices which fuse blood vessels, but little is known about the tissue's response to the stimuli. The need for accurate measurements of tissue behavior during(More)
Two common sources of distortion in scanning probe microscopy are piezo creep and thermal drift, the latter caused by slow thermal expansions of materials in the sample and microscope due to small changes in temperature over the course of a scan. We present a technique for correcting distortion due to thermal drift along all three spatial axes, along with(More)
