Introduction: Wii Teach You AFM

Here is an atomic force microscope education kit for open house demonstration. In 2007, the Nintendo Wii just start selling....The innovative way of control was very interesting....so I modified the Wiimote controller for AFM education purpose.....

Step 1: Disassemble the Wiimote Controller

Step 2: Find the Infrared Camera in Front of the Circuit Board

Step 3: Use Wires for Extending the Connection of the Camera

Step 4: Sorry...some Photos Are Missing....please See the Video

Dear Dr Hwu,

Can I detect things on the nano-scale with this device? Would I need to add stepper motors?

Isaac

This is just a model not able to detect nano scale feature....

Hello Professor Hwu,

I am a french undergraduate student in Physics and I am working on AFM for a lab project. I find you work incredible and I would like to build it too to understand really how afm works.
Can you send me the detailed build files to build it ?

My email is jonathanweb31@gmail.com

Thanks a lot in advance

(I also posted a request for your orther DIY Afm model because I want to compare the difficulty of building)

Hi johnz20, the wiimote teach you AFM is much simpler. You can use laser diode, solar panel, PMMA frame then you can build this very fast.
