The Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) on its stage on the optics table.
Eamonn Kennedy (my collaborator) explaining how the AFM works.
The AFM in action. This image taken from a monitor depicts the AFM tip in the process of scanning nano tubes.
Eamonn uses a tweezers to pick up an AFM tip in order to attempt show us the sheer size of an actual tip.
