Tjerk Oosterkamp Lab - Microscopy and Quantum Mechanics at milliKelvin temperatures

We explore the possibilities to combine magnetic resonance techniques with atomic force microscopy together in a single microscope: the MRI-AFM, also called Magnetic Resonance Force Microscopy (MRFM). 

We belong to the Quantum Matter and Optics group at the Kamerlingh Onnes Laboratorium, part of the Leiden Institute of Physics (LION). We work in close collaboration with the Department of Fine Mechanics (FMD) and the Electronics Department (ELD).

Friction in ice skating We started a Friday afternoon experiment to measure the thickness of the water layer that is held responsible for the lubrication in ice skating.
MRFM in Quantum Matter We explore the possibilities of using Magnetic Resonance Force Microscopy (MRFM) as a tool for experiments involving quantum matter like topological insulators (TI).
