Extracting Hidden Three-Dimensional Information from Your Fluorescence Microscope
06 Mar 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Mikael Backlund
Here I will focus on two studies that demonstrate this concept. First I will discuss the fundamental limits associated with determining the three-dimensional position of a fluorescent emitter, with insights provided by quantum parameter estimation theory. Second I will show how nitrogen-vacancy...

Nanotribology, Nanomechanics and Materials Characterization Studies
08 Jun 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Bharat Bhushan
Fundamental nanotribological studies provide insight to molecular origins of interfacial phenomena including adhesion, friction, wear and lubrication. Friction and wear of lightly loaded micro/nano components are highly dependent on the surface interactions (few atomic layers). Nanotribological...
