The TEDx Boise 2019 was held on April 20th. Per their announcement, “Byung Kim, a physics professor at Boise State University (BSU), is a leading expert in atomic force microscopy (AFM), which he has focused on for more than 25 years. He recently developed a unique technique called COIFM, which makes it possible to grab and manipulate water molecules in order to understand their mechanical behaviors at the nanoscale level. COIFM overcomes the “snap-to-contact” problem associated with conventional AFM force measurements by using a technique called “force feedback” he learned at Sandia National Laboratories before joining BSU.”
