single-molecule force spectroscopy

Optical tweezers: with a tandem traps we can pull apart DNA protein chimeric constructs. On the right is a DNA hairpin with a soft unfolding barrier. The DNA is held by μm beads in optical traps produced by a high power IR laser. FECs are produced with ultra-stable force and microfluidic control of the environment.
