The scanning probe microscopy ?eld has been swiftly increasing. it's a difficult activity to gather a well timed evaluation of this ?eld with an emphasis on technical dev- opments and business functions. It grew to become obvious whereas modifying Vols. I–IV that an enormous variety of technical and applicational elements are current and quickly - veloping world wide. contemplating the good fortune of Vols. I–IV and the truth that extra colleagues from top laboratories have been able to give a contribution their most recent achie- ments, we determined to extend the sequence with articles touching ?elds no longer coated within the prior volumes. The reaction and help of our colleagues have been very good, making it attainable to edit one other 3 volumes of the sequence. not like to- cal convention court cases, the utilized scanning probe tools intend to provide an summary of contemporary advancements as a compendium for either functional functions and up to date easy study effects, and novel technical advancements with admire to instrumentation and probes. the current volumes disguise 3 major components: novel probes and strategies (Vol. V), charactarization (Vol. VI), and biomimetics and commercial purposes (Vol. VII). quantity V comprises an summary of probe and sensor applied sciences together with built-in cantilever thoughts, electrostatic microscanners, low-noise equipment and more desirable dynamic strength microscopy suggestions, high-resonance dynamic strength - croscopy and the torsional resonance procedure, modelling of tip cantilever structures, scanning probe equipment, ways for elasticity and adhesion measurements at the nanometer scale in addition to optical purposes of scanning probe ideas according to near?eld Raman spectroscopy and imaging.

M. Nosonovsky · B. 1 Sawtooth Periodic Proﬁle Let us consider a surface with a sawtooth proﬁle with a tooth angle (or the absolute value of the slope) of α (Fig. 9). 7), we calculate the roughness factor as Rf = ASL = (cos α)−1 . 6), we obtain the contact angle as cos θ0 . 40) cannot be used any further. 40), we can obtain the value of θ, which corresponds to α0 , and this gives that the critical value α0 corresponds to the contact angle θ = 180◦ . This means that by increasing the tooth angle toward the critical value, a surface with the contact angle approaching 180◦ can be produced, for a given θ0 .

58 (θ = 159◦ ). 38) . 38) cannot be applied; therefore, the sinusoidal interface is not recommended for producing superhydrophobic surfaces. In addition to this, the sinusoidal proﬁle provides roughness only in the direction perpendicular to the grooves, which would result in contact angle anisotropy. 2 Three-Dimensional Surfaces The analysis of proﬁles provides us with critical values of the roughness parameters in the case when the contact line is parallel to the grooves. Three-dimensional surfaces, which constitute a more general case, with various typical shapes of asperities are considered in this section.
