My main research interest is to develop tools to investigate nanoscale systems. In particular, I have developed a dedicated scanning probe microscope to measure sub-picoNewton forces parallel to a flat surface. The name of this technique is the lateral molecular force microscope (LMFM). The sensors used in a LMFM can have stiffness a thousand times smaller than the ones used in conventional atomic force microscopy.
At the present the LMFM is used in 4 main areas of research:
1) To study the dynamic properties of confined liquid films under shear. This technique will allow detecting the organization of confined molecules ...
