A photo of our first custom-built magnetic resonance force microscope (MRFM) installed at the bottom of our 3He refrigerator. The device is designed to operate at cryogenic temperatures and in high vacuum.
Bike Tour 2018
On Friday, May 11th, 2018, the group went on a day-long bicycle tour of nearby Alsace, France.
Davide, Martino, and the Probe
Prof. Poggio and Ph.D. student Davide Cadeddu are shown here with our custom-made 3He scanning probe microscope.
Nanowires as Scanning Force Sensors
A new type of atomic force microscope (AFM) uses nanowires as tiny sensors. Unlike standard AFM, the device with a nanowire sensor enables measurements of both the size and direction of forces.
SNI Video 2014
In December 2014, the group was featured in a Swiss Nanoscience Institute (SNI) video on the Masters and Ph.D. school on nanoscience here at the University of Basel. (Video)
