Final Report - FORCETOOL (Multipurpose Force Tool for Quantitative Nanoscale Analysis and Manipulation of Biomolecular, Polymeric and Heterogeneous Materials)

Project ID: 13684
Funded under: FP6-NMP

Abstract

This is the final report of the project 'Multipurpose force tool for quantitative nanoscale analysis and manipulation of biomolecular, polymeric and heterogeneous materials' (Forcetool), which ran from 2005 to 2008. The project proposed a multifunctional, flexible tool that enables characterisation, control or manipulation of structures on a nanometre-scale, opening new approaches for manufacturing at molecular and nanoscale levels.

the report contains the main objectives and executive summary, as well as an in-depth discussion of bimodal Atomic force microscopy (AFM). It also talks about the methodology of the project, including high resolution imaging of biomolecules at higher harmonics. Dissemination and use of project results have also been outlined in the report.
