In this opportunity, we develop novel scanning probe microscopy instrumentation to characterize the properties of polymeric and biological materials systems. These systems can range from model polymers used to validate new methods, to energy materials (e.g., cellulosic biomass), to materials used in advanced manufacturing (e.g., FDM filaments). There is a strong focus on mechanical property characterization with dynamic atomic force microscopy methods; however, there is also interest in other relevant material properties.
