Magnetometry of microcrystals using a membrane piezoresistivesensor – NANOSENSORS MSS

Prof. Ohmichi from Kobe University presented his first results on magnetometry using the NANOSENSORS Membrane-type Surface-stress Sensor (MSS) (NANOSENSORS special development code: SD-MSS-1K) at  the 72nd Annual Meeting, the Physical Society of Japan (JPS) (Osaka University, Toyonaka Campus, March 17 – 20, 2017).
Congratulations to Professor Ohmichi for the excellent results!

Why you shouldn’t just pick a cantilever that is “lying around”

Have a look at this useful blog article Why you shouldn’t just pick a cantilever that is lying around on Microscopy and Analysis explaining why it matters to choose the right cantilever and what to look out for.
