    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


    We measured static properties of single polymer chains near the Θ temperature using a method called as nanofishing, which enabled us to stretch a single polymer chain with picking it at its two modified termini using atomic force microscope (AFM). With a newly installed heater/cooler system, the experiments were held at wide-range temperatures, resulting in wide-range solvent qualities from poor to good solvent condition via Θ point. Molecular-weight dependence and solvent effects will be investigated at the site.
