Title:First Snowfall
Author(s):Walsh, Dylan
Contributor(s):Frederick Seitz Materials Research Laboratory Central Research Facilities, University of Illinois
Subject(s):Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
Abstract:Atomic force microscopy (AFM) was used to image the assembly of individual polymer molecules on a mica substrate. This high resolution molecular image provides a glimpse into the workings of the atomic world, providing researchers the insights needed to design self-assembling materials. The coloring of the image is done by the height of polymer above the surface (dark green). The formation shows a single (green/blue layer) and a double (light green layer) thickness layer with the white spots signifying unorganized clustering of polymers. The whole image is reminiscent of a branch of a pine tree after the first snow fall.
