Light provides pull for future nanocatalyst measurement

Rice University nanophotonics researcher Isabell Thomann uses lasers, light-activated materials and light-measuring nanoscale tips to push the boundaries of experimental nanoscience, but light is providing the pull in her ...

AFM tips from the microwave

Scientists from the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena (Germany) have succeeded in improving a fabrication process for Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) probe tips.

Microscopic fountain pen to be used as a chemical sensor

The Atomic Force Microscope (AFM), which uses a fine-tipped probe to scan surfaces at the atomic scale, will soon be augmented with a chemical sensor. This involves the use of a hollow AFM cantilever, through which a liquid ...
