- Pulling polymers leads to new insights into their mechanical behavior
( University of Basel ) In collaboration with colleagues from Berlin and Madrid, researchers at the Department of Physics at the University of Basel have pulled up isolated molecular chains from a gold surface, using the tip of an atomic force microscope. The observed signal provides insight into the detachment force and binding energy of molecules. The results have been published in the ...
