High-Speed AFM

High-speed in-situ atomic force microscopy of biological processes

Atomic force microscopy (AFM) can image surfaces of materials and biological objects in-situ with nanometer scale resolution.  A recent development of fast-scanning AFM instrumentation gave us the capability to image surfaces at nanometer scale resolution at near-video rates enabling us for the first time to track and image the motion of biological molecules.  We are exploring the unique capabilities of high-speed AFM to capture and analyze nanometer-scale dynamics of biological and non-biological objects assembled on surfaces and surface templates in aqueous environments.
