Applications of Atomic Force Microscopy in Optical Fiber Research
In this paper, novel applications of atomic force microscopy (AFM) to optical fiber research are reviewed. Three specific examples are presented, illustrating the effective use of AFM to advance our understanding of material structure and properties in optical fibers. Existing issues and the need for innovation in applications of AFM to new material systems are also discussed.
