Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Near-field scanning optical microscopy (NSOM) was used to obtain simultaneous topographical images of the protein surface topography in a hydrated state, and optical images of the surface with nanometer resolution. Topographical images were analyzed to measure the surface features while optical images were examined to confirm observed changes. Changes in features due to variations in laminin concentration and time were also determined.
