Controlled manipulation of large molecules

We want to understand what is the highest level of control that can be achieved in single-molecule manipulation with SPM. To this purpose we perform single molecule manipulation experiments with qPlus tuning fork non-contact atomic force microscope (NC-AFM) [1, 2, 3]. We also develop new approaches which make the single-moleucule manipulation more intuitive and efficient [4, 5]
