Design and fabrication of novel cantilever sensors

My research is based on the design and microfabrication of novel cantilever sensors. In collaboration with other members of the Nanophysics and Soft Matter Group in the School of Physics, these sensors have found application in lateral molecular-force microscopy, transverse dynamic force microscopy and mass sensing for medical diagnostics.

Ultra-soft cantilever

These probes are now available commercially from our start-up company NuNano.
