AFM Nanoscience of polymer topics

This website provides an introducttion to Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) measurements on soft materials, like polymers. The basic principles are described, how the technique is used in pracdtice and provides interesting examples illustrating its utility. More advanced topics related to contrast imaging and the use of chemically modified AFM tips are also included. An image gallery provides examples of measurements taken using the various AFM approaches. This reinforces the explanations given initially and provides concrete results from which readers can judge its usefulness. Users may be instructors of courses that have a surface chemistry component and researchers interested in AFM to probe polymers.
