A fast heatingcooling stage designed for use in atomic force microscope imaging in liquid media was described. The proposed configuration was assembled by calculating the heat transfer coefficient for the heatingcooling plate and the spacer. The air gap between the cooling jacket and scanner acted as a resist for the transfer of heat to the scanner, which induced by the thermal drift, cantilever bending, and nonlinearity of image. In this system, the tapping mode was negligibly affected by thermal stress of the heating stage, compared to the contact mode.
