In this video on the use of force curves to measure nano mechanical properties of soft materials, Dr. Patrick Frederix, application scientist, shows how to setup and measure force curves on a FlexAFM. He compares force curves obtained on two different polymers and discusses how we can deduce the nanomechanical properties from these force curves.
