The design of a scanning probe microscope suitable for metrology applications must include solutions to several problems. Actuator errors can be large because of their nonlinear behavior, but this can be solved by independently monitoring the actuator's motion. The probe must be shaped properly for a given measurement, and it must be characterized to allow interpretation of the measurement. We have studied the effects of interaction forces and probe shape with emphasis on surface roughness measurements.
