Nanoscale optical techniques such as photoconductive atomic-force microscopy (Pc-AFM) are useful tools for probing nanoscale morphology and defects in organic thin films. However, the interpretation of the data can be difficult.

We have developed a simulation package that can be used to aid the interpretation of data and investigate the limitations of the method.
