Stiffness tomography by atomic force microscopy.

Biophys J. 2009 Jul 22;97(2):674-7. doi: 10.1016/j.bpj.2009.05.010. The atomic force microscope is a convenient tool to probe living samples at the nanometric scale. Among its numerous capabilities, the instrument can be operated as a nano-indenter to gather information about the mechanical properties of the sample. In this operating mode, the deformation of the cantilever is displayed Read more about Stiffness tomography by atomic force microscopy.[…]
