Martino Poggio and David Awschalom in Chiavari, near Genova, Italy in November 2009. The occasion was the National School on the Physics of Matter: Physics of Spin in Materials held in Chiavari.
On Friday, May 11th, 2018, the group went on a day-long bicycle tour of nearby Alsace, France.
Prof. Poggio and Ph.D. student Davide Cadeddu are shown here with our custom-made 3He scanning probe microscope.
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.
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)
