Abstract: In a recent article Barnard et al. described the use of voice coil actuators to realize a large range scanner for probe microscopy. The results reported are interesting, but the idea is not new. In two preceding papers [1998, 1991] we had described a large coverage, wide dynamic range scanner based on homemade voice coil actuators, while Garcia Cantu and Huerta Garnica  had already used inductive scanners for tunneling microscopy. Lamentably, none of these articles was cited by Barnard et al.
