Scanning probe microscope (SPM) provided unprecedented visualization of individual molecule, and also allow to manipulate objectives at nanoscale. Atomic force microscopy (AFM)as one of key members of SPM family has been playing a key role in the field of nanoscience. It has significant contributions to understand structures and physical properties at nanscale. This talk will review the recent results and research activities at my bio-SPM group with particular focus towards exploring structures and functions of biological samples. In addition, AFM-based methods for nanomaterial investigation will be also mentioned in this talk.
Dr. Mingdong Dong is currently working as an Associate Professor and a group leader at Bio-SPM group at Aarhus University Denmark. He obtained the Bachelor, Master, and PhD degrees from China, Sweden, Denmark respectively. After obtaining his PhD degree (2006), he continued with a Postdoctoral Research Associate Position at Aarhus University, Denmarkand Harvard University, USA. Dr. Dong has published more than 100 papers (More than 4700 citations, reached an H-Index of 35 and i10-index of 94) in top international peer reviewed journals such as Nature, Nature Nanotechnology, Nature Chemistry, Nature Communications, PNAS, Angewandte Chemie, Nano Letters, JACS, Small, ACS NANO, Advanced Materials, etc.Dr. Dong also serve as a board member or editors for international peer review journals including Nature group- scientific report, the Royal Society of Chemistry EES and RSC advances, and serve reviewers for several scientific journals such as the American Physics Society (APS, USA), the American Chemical Society (ACS, USA), the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC, UK), and the Institute of Physics (IOP, UK).Nature group (UK).
