Problems with atomic force microscopy


 Recently, I have a problem bothered me alot, anybody please help me out.

 I am using Dimension 3100 AFM. It is a scanned tip SPM. There are two screws to adjust mirrow so that the laser can be reflected to the photodiode. My problem is:

Lateral Force Microscopy

I would like to do lateral force microscopy on biological samples.  The more I look into it, it seems it is very difficult to calibrate AFM tips for lateral force microscopy.  Does anyone have any suggestions about how to calibrate tips and which tips are conducive for lateral AFM? 

Blood Clot Mechanics at the Molecular Level

Cross-posted to Biocurious a blog about biology through the eyes of physicists.

The function and dysfunction of blood clots are often directly related to their mechanical properties: clots stop blood from flowing through wounds but can also break away (embolize) and block blood vessels causing stroke. Strength and plasticity are both important for ensuring the former is more common than the latter and so people have been studying the mechanics of clots for over 50 years.
