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


<p>Dear Dr Hwu,</p><p>Can I detect things on the nano-scale with this device? Would I need to add stepper motors?</p><p>Isaac</p>
<p>This is just a model not able to detect nano scale feature....</p>
<p>Hello Professor Hwu,</p><p>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.<br>Can you send me the detailed build files to build it ?</p><p>My email is jonathanweb31@gmail.com</p><p>Thanks a lot in advance</p><p>(I also posted a request for your orther DIY Afm model because I want to compare the difficulty of building)</p>
<p>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.</p><p>https://www.instructables.com/id/How-To-Connect-your-Wiimote-to-your-PC-via-Blueto/</p>
