Size and mechanical stability of norovirus capsids depend on pH: a nanoindentation study.
Norovirus-like particles were imaged using atomic force microscopy. The mechanical stability of the virus-like particles (VLPs) was probed by nanoindentation at pH values ranging from 2 to 10. ThisExpand

A novel approach for measuring the intrinsic nanoscale thickness of polymer brushes by means of atomic force microscopy: application of a compressible fluid model.
The thickness of a poly(sulfo propyl methacrylate) (PSPM) brush is determined by Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) imaging as a function of the loading force at different ionic strengths, ranging fromExpand
