Date:  June 22, 2012   15:30 

Place: Kleiner Physik-Hörsaal, Geschwister-Scholl-Platz

Atomic Force Microscopy technologies have come of age and are ubiquitous in many applications in life sciences. Besides allowing Force distance spectroscopy and high resolution 3 D images of samples close to their native state various technological developments has turned the technique into a multifunctional nanoscopic toolbox. A variety of applications will be discussed:

  • High speed AFM: Seeing Molecular Motors at work
  • Taking AFM Technology beyond imaging towards Personalised Healthcare (PHC) diagnostics
  • New AFM based instrumentation developments
