Conference presentations:

Photo-induced Force Microscopy (PiFM): A New Technique at the (Bio-)Mineralogists Fingertips

July, 2021


This presentation was recorded for the Goldschmidt 2021 virtual conference and gives an introduction to Photo-induced Force Microscopy (PiFM) and its application to aspects of biomineralization.


Webinar presentations:

Geoscience Applications of Photoinduced Force Microscopy for Nanoscale Chemical Imaging

Nov 30, 2021

In this webinar, Derek Nowak and I provide an introduction to Photo-induced Force Microscopy (PiFM) - a new AFM-based technique that provides FTIR-like molecular compound information at the nano-scale. This webinar is tailored to a geochemical audience and provides several examples of geological matrices. The event was hosted by Molecular Vista and the Geochemical Society and was made available on YouTube on November 30, 2021 via Molecular Vista's YouTube channel.
