The Physics Group has purchased a high resolution atomic force microscope (AFM). This instrument can produce high resolution images of structures that are 1000 times smaller than a human hair.  Physics students and faculty use the AFM for mapping micro and nanostructures, studying surface properties of thin films, and manipulating matter at the nanoscale.
