    The role of the catechol moiety in the adhesive properties of mussel proteins and related synthetic materials has been extensively studied in the last years but still remains elusive. Here, a simplified model approach is ...
  • The Mendeleev-Meyer force project 

    Santos Hernández, Sergio; Lai, Chia-Yun; Amadei, Carlo Alberto; Gadelrab, Karim Raafat; Tang, Tzu-Chieh; Verdaguer Prats, Albert; Barcons Xixons, Víctor; Font Teixidó, Josep; Colchero, Jaimer; Chiesa, Matteo (2016-10-28)

    Here we present the Mendeleev–Meyer Force Project which aims at tabulating all materials and substances in a fashion similar to the periodic table. The goal is to group and tabulate substances using nanoscale force footprints ...
  • Unlocking higher harmonics in atomic force microscopy with gentle interactions 

    Santos Hernández, Sergio; Barcons Xixons, Víctor; Font Teixidó, Josep; Verdaguer Prats, Albert (2014-03-11)
    Article
    Open Access
    In dynamic atomic force microscopy, nanoscale properties are encoded in the higher harmonics. Nevertheless, when gentle interactions and minimal invasiveness are required, these harmonics are typically undetectable. Here, ...
