STM vibrational compensation

I’ve a long standing interest in STM projects since seeing the various low cost and amateur project attempts many years ago. I recently came across this paper describing a method for compensating for the probe vibration. The results (shown on HOGP below) see quite impressive. And allow for a scan rate of a few hundred Hertz.
