We use Atomic force microscopy in liquids and ambient conditions to study

Biosystems/biomaterials

  • human epithelial cells,
  • manipulation and arrangement of molecules, to do “nanosurgery”
  • biosensors to improve their sensitivity and speed by orders of magnitude
  • nanophysiology of insects
  • human skin
  • dental surfaces

Surface Science/Materials:

  • mechanisms of self-assembly,
  • nanomechanics,
  • interaction between nanoclasters and colloidal particles immersed in various media, surfactants,
  • chemical mechanical planarization (CMP),
  • true atomic resolution in liquids,
  • localized charges on photoactive materials.
