Alfred Hero - Interests in Magnetic Resonance Force Microscopy
The objective of MRFM is to form 3D images of atomic structures by detecting
tiny forces on a cantilever probe induced by coupling of the cantilever to
the spin moments of electrons or protons. This work has been supported by
DARPA under the MOSAIC program. Some recent publications are included below.
