Optical properties of quantum dots directly depend on their sizes. That is why nanocrystals size determination is an important practical task. The method of atomic force microscopy is convenient for this task due to its sub-nanometer resolution. In this work we have investigated the influence of the tapping mode AFM main device settings on the imaged quantum dots size. Special attention is paid to the methods of sample preparation. The presence of strong electrolyte in the nanoparticles sol allows to deposit separate nanocrystals on the substrate and to measure their sizes accurately.
