[Illinois] Advanced Materials Characterization Workshop 2012: AM-FM and Loss Tangent Imaging, Two Tools for Quant. Nanomechanical Property Mapping
05 Jul 2012 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Irene Revenko
Amplitude-modulated Atomic Force Microscopy (AM-AFM), also known as tapping mode, is a proven, reliable and gentle imaging method with wide spread applications. Previously, the contrast in AM-AFM has been difficult to quantify. In this work, we introduce two new techniques that allow unambiguous...
AFM Sample Preparation in Biology
03 May 2011 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Irene Revenko
All biological samples are different, the key is to start with established recipes for similar samples, then adapt the procedures for a different one. We'll present guidelines for choosing a substrate, immobilizing the sample, choosing the proper cantilever, as well as tips and tricks optimize...
Atomic Force Microscopy: Applications for Life Science Research
This presentation presents the principles of AFM and demonstrates the applications in Life Sciences. We will also discuss key points about the technology, and more particularly, the technical characteristics you should understand when using an AFM such as noise level, limitations of the...
