About the author (2011)

Ricardo Garcia is Professor at the Instituto de Microelectroni-ca de Madrid (CSIC), one of the Institutes of the Spanish Council for Scienti? c Research. He received his PhD degree in physics from the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid in 1990. From 1990 to 1993 he was a post-doctoral associate at the Universities of New Mexico and Oregon. Professor Garcia is author and co-author of 104 articles and 14 book chapters, and has contributed some highly regarded papers on the development and optimization of amplitude modulation AFM (tapping mode AFM) as well as on the emergence of scanning probe nanolithographies. In 2007, Professor Garcia was elected a Fellow of the American Physical Society.
