Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The atomic force microscopy (AFM) has evolved into an extremely useful instrument in life sciences. Structural and micro-mechanical properties of supramolecular arrangements like molecular films and protein complexes were elucidated. Dynamic processes in live cells were recorded at unparalleled resolution and molecular interactions were investigated. Selected samples of such aspects are presented.
