probe microscopy measurements
Transverse Dynamic Force Microscopy (TDFM)
Areas of expertise
My research interests are focused on exceeding current limitations on the rate and sensitivity of scanning probe microscopy measurements. To this end I am involved in the following projects: the fastest contact mode AFM in the world (over 1,200 frames per second); the development of a video-rate non-contact technique, unique to Bristol called Transverse Dynamic Force Microscopy (TDFM); as well as the creation of cantilever arrays for mass sensing, capable of femto-gram measurements. I am mainly based in the Centre for Nanoscience and Quantum Information.
