Colloidal particles are widely used as probes to measure interaction forces between two surfaces using atomic force microscope (AFM). This project involves establishment of protocols for:
1. Précised and controlled manipulation of micro-sized colloidal beads on AFM cantilevers.
2.Surface functionalization of micro-beads with 2D materials such as graphene, etc.
