    To establish of standard technique of nanolength measurement in a two-dimensional plane, a new (AFM) system has been designed. In this system, measurement uncertainty is dominantly affected by the Abbe error of the XYZ scanning stage. No linear stage is perfectly straight; in other words, every...
