“Optical Force Sensing With Cylindical Microcontainers”
Recently, the paper: “Optical Force Sensing With Cylindical Microcontainers” has been published in the Particle & Particle System Characterization Journal.
In this work Professor Denz and her team: Mr. Meissner and Dr. Oliver, use our force measurement system commercially available: Lunam T-40i, to measure forces on cylindrical probes (*) in order to establish whether the established methodology for force sensing based on spherical objects still applies for other geometrically anisotropic probes.
(*) “there is an increasing demand in using force probes in elongated or cylindrical shape: Most biological probes that are of utmost importance to guarantee biocompatibility of in vivo force metrology, are no spherical objects”.
Congratulations for the results team !.
