First Photo-induced Force Microscopy Paper by Customer Published

Junghoon Jahng et. al. have published a theoretical and experimental analysis of the dominant forces measured in PiFM in a paper titled “Gradient and scattering forces in photoinduced force microscopy.”¬†They conclude that both optically induced dipole-dipole gradient force (Fg) and scattering force (Fs) are present in a typical PiFM setup.¬† Whereas Fs is insensitive to […] Read more
