We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher who will use single-molecule force experiments to study mechanical properties of polymeric systems. Atomic force microscopy (AFM) is a powerful technique to measure the strength of single bonds and rupture dynamics. We have recently used AFM to directly measure the strength of ionic bonds between hydrated charges and proposed a molecular rupture model (Spruijt, et al. ACS Nano 6 (2012) 5297-5303). Such detailed knowledge of individual interactions…Continue
