Harvard's Philip Kim Investigates Mesoscale Transport Phenomena of Low-dimensional Nanomaterials With The Nanosurf Flex-Axiom AFM

(Nanowerk News) Low dimensional materials are now of keen interest for many researchers in the materials and physical sciences. These materials have the potential to radically change from the ground up how materials and devices are built and functionalized.
The Kim laboratory at Harvard University is utilizing the Nanosurf Flex-Axiom atomic force microscope to conduct research on a variety of materials including graphene flakes. The Flex-Axiom offers his group the right combination of performance and ease of use to effectively address and characterize these cutting-edge materials.
