    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


    Nanofishing is an excellent method to obtain quasi-static property of single polymer chains using atomic force microscope (AFM). We reported that temperature-dependence of second virial coefficient which was obtained by nanofishing showed a good agreement with that obtained by light scattering method in the previous study about polystyrene. In this study, a method we named "nanorheology AFM", which applies sinusoidal perturbation during stretching process of a single polymer chain (nanorheology), were performed. Solvent effects on the dynamic properties of single polystyrene chains will be reported.
