A new application note discusses how atomic force microscope (AFM) systems can be used in various disciplines of biological research, such as imaging of live cells and bacteria, single-cell manipulation, or force spectroscopy on molecules, cells, or tissue.
Abberior, a leading provider of cutting-edge imaging technologies, announced today that they have placed a super-resolution STED microscope at MBC BioLabs, the leading San Francisco Bay Area biotech incubator network.
The DNA of prokaryotes — single-cell organisms, for example bacteria — is known to contain sequences that are derived from DNA fragments of viruses that infected the prokaryote earlier. These sequences,...
In this study, the researchers utilized conductive atomic force microscopy (c-AFM) to investigate the potential of nanostructured and bimetallic copper-gold electrocatalysts for carbon-dioxide electroreduction.
Researchers studied the K+ distribution on cleft mica surfaces using low-temperature and non-contact atomic force microscopy (AFM) in ultra-high vacuum (UHV). Their results could impact how 2D materials are used in electronics.
A recent Nano Letters study characterized the molecular interaction between S NAbs and S proteins of SARS-CoV-2 using high-speed atomic force microscopy (HS-AFM).
An article published in ACS Applied Nano Materials experimentally presented the nanotribology of hydrogenated amorphous Si (a-Si:H) through repetitive scanning using atomic force microscopy (AFM). Overall, sliding caused an increase in friction and prevented wear.
An article published in Science Advances demonstrated twinning in the lead (Pb) individual nanocrystals by utilizing in situ atomic resolution transmission electron microscopy (TEM).
An article published in Communications Materials presented the effect of humidity on hardness and elastic modulus (E) for two series of lead halide perovskite single crystals. The results indicated the influence of hydrogen (H)-bonding, bond length, and polarization of the ions in lead halide perovskite single crystals.
In an article published in the journal ACS Applied Energy Materials, the nanomechanical and morphological changes were investigated in Ni-Al-n LDH nanosheets by utilizing in situ electrochemical atomic force microscopy during potential cycling.
