Within this chapter are detailed descriptions of all techniques used during the work in this thesis are described. The chapter begins by discussing the SPM techniques used in this chapter as multiple modes have been used. Care is given to describe and highlight the differences in data collection from these different systems. Details of the sample preparation and any biological experimental design are noted in the latter part of the chapter. Where work was conducted by another researcher, or a contribution has been made in some manner, it is also noted here.
