Researchers Develop Short, Flexible, Reusable AFM Probe
2014-04-10 12:47:04

NIST JILA researchers have engineered a short, flexible, reusable probe for the atomic force microscope (AFM) that enables state-of-the-art precision and stability in picoscale force measurements. Shorter, softer and more agile than standard and recently enhanced AFM probes, the JILA tips will benefit nanotechnology and studies of folding and stretching in biomolecules such as proteins and DNA. An AFM probe is a cantilever, shaped like a tiny diving board with a small, atomic-scale...

Mechanism Behind Wear At The Atomic Scale Shown By Penn Research
2013-01-30 15:16:33

University of Pennsylvania Wear is a fact of life. As surfaces rub against one another, they break down and lose their original shape. With less material to start with and functionality that often depends critically on shape and surface structure, wear affects nanoscale objects more strongly than it does their macroscale counterparts. Worse, the mechanisms behind wear processes are better understood for things like car engines than nanotech devices. But now, researchers at the...

Nano-manufacturing Improved With Nanometer-scale Diamond Tips
2012-11-14 15:39:36

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign One of the most promising innovations of nanotechnology has been the ability to perform rapid nanofabrication using nanometer-scale tips. The fabrication speed can be dramatically increased by using heat.  High speed and high temperature have been known to degrade the tip“¦ until now. “Thermal processing is widely used in manufacturing,” according to William King, the College of Engineering Bliss Professor at...
