This page is intended to act as a repository for manuals for atomic force microscopes. At this time, there is relatively little information here (basically, the manuals I have .pdf copies of), but I hope that over time it will grow. If you have a manual for your instrument that you think could be useful for other AFM users, please send it to me at This email address is being protected from spambots.

I hope that this page is useful for AFM users, especially those who inherited older instruments that have become spearated 




Asylum Research (now  Oxford Instruments)




JPK (now a part of Bruker)


 Molecular Imaging/Agilent/Keysight


Other Documents

A Practical Guide to Scanning Probe Microscopy - This is a .pdf file of the SPM practical guide, which I beleive was first made by TopoMetrix, this is the Thermomicroscopes version. This is a very old document, but contains a lot of helpful information for AFM users, still. Not an instrument manual, it's a simple guide to the general principles of how an AFM works. If you read this and want something more in-depth, I reccomend this book!
