The use of carbon nanotube (CNT) probes for charge imaging and manipulation was investigated. The local nature of CNT tip for electrostatic force microscopy was demonstrated. Force-distance measurements and tip-shape profiling with a uniformly charged oxide square were performed. Results showed that CNT could be used to probe long-range electrostatic forces with a lateral resolution better than 5 nm.
