Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Pushing the envelope of magnetic tweezer resolution
by Lansdorp, Bob, Ph.D., University of California, Santa Barbara, 2015, 158; 10103559
Abstract (Summary)

The magnetic tweezer is a single molecule instrument that can measure the extension of biomolecules by tracking tethered probe particles. Due to its experimental simplicity and ability to apply a constant external force to probe particles, the magnetic tweezer is ideally suited to measuring single molecule dynamics under applied tension. In this thesis, I push the resolution of magnetic tweezers to angstrom spatial resolution by using a high-speed camera which can achieve more than 10 kHz temporal resolution.
