A nice picture of our microscope

Here are Jill, Nate, and me looking at some data on the our atomic force microscope (AFM).  The microscope is in the background inside the enclosure.  In the foreground is a rack of electronics that Cosmin and I are using to modify its feedback response mechanism.  I’m always eager to meet students who may be interested in working with me in my lab.  If you’re a young, potential physics major, or even a prospective student, please contact me.
