Caption: Atomic force micrograph at near-atomic scale of a crystal of anthracene. Anthracene is a colourless hydrocarbon, obtained by the fractional distillation of coal tar. Its main use is in the dye industry. The atomic force microscope (AFM) obtains an image by drawing a very fine probe across the surface of the sample. Vertical movement caused by the sample's topography are converted into electronic signals. These are then processed to form a map of the surface as seen here. Magnification unknown.
