Using novel AFM lithography techniques to create flexible platforms for biomechanical measurements

Rizzo, Daniel Joseph
2012

Here we explore the validation of a novel technique that incorporates both the spatial and force resolution of the AFM with the temporal resolution of FRET. It has been shown that a technique known as nanografting can be used to immobilize proteins on gold substrates in well-ordered arrays that maintain protein biochemical activity. AFM force measurements may then be performed on thes... read more
