We present a technique for reconstructing biomolecular structures from scanning force microscope data. The technique works by iteratively refining model molecules by comparison of simulated and experimental images. It can remove instrument artifacts to yield accurate dimensional measurements from tip-broadened data. The result of the reconstruction is a(More)
We obtain analytical expressions for electrostatic forces between an atomic force microscope tip and a sample immersed in an electrolyte. These simple expressions relate force to tip-sample separation explicitly incorporating tip size, solvent ion size, and solvent ion concentration. If the ions are much smaller than the tip-sample gap, the force decays(More)
