Description

Atomic force microscopy (AFM) or scanning force microscopy (SFM) is a very high-resolution type of scanning probe microscopy, with demonstrated resolution on the order of fractions of a nanometer, more than 1000 times better than the optical diffraction limit.

  1. Addressing Molecular Dynamics Time-scale Issues to Study Atomic-scale Friction

    12 Oct 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Ashlie Martini

    This presentation will include an introduction to several accelerated molecular dynamics methods. However, particular focus will be given to parallel replica (ParRep) dynamics in which atomistic simulations are run parallel in time to extend their total duration. The ParRep method is based on...

  2. AFM Metrology of Cellulose Nanocrystals

    03 May 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Robert J. Moon, Ryan Wagner

    This talk discusses the characterization of cellulose nanocrystals via atomic force microscopy.

  3. AFM Sample Preparation in Biology

    03 May 2011 | | 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...

  4. Atomic Force Microscopy

    01 Dec 2005 | | Contributor(s):: Arvind Raman

    Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) is an indispensible tool in nano science for the fabrication, metrology, manipulation, and property characterization of nanostructures. This tutorial reviews some of the physics of the interaction forces between the nanoscale tip and sample, the dynamics of the...

  5. Atomic Force Microscopy: Applications for Life Science Research

    21 Mar 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Irene Revenko
