When using an Autoprobe M5 AFM to get a f-d curve, the default parameter for the horizontal axis is "driving signal" with range from -1 to +1.

But when analyzing the curves for mechanical properties such as elastic modulus, the actual displacement of the piezoelectric scanner is needed.

The Input Configuration Dialog Box allow to select topography, Z detector, Z Scanner....but which one of them records the piezo displacement?

Thanks for your patience and help!
