Real-time Structural Analysis for Soft Nanotechnology

Departments of Chemistry and Physics and Astronomy
University of Sheffield, UK

Jamie Hobbs is an EPSRC Advanced Research fellow and has been a Lecturer in Nanoanalytical Science since the beginning of 2004, a position held jointly between the Departments of Chemistry and Physics and Astronomy, at the University of Sheffield, UK. Dr Hobbs did his PhD and post-doctoral work at the University of Bristol, working on polymer crystallization using scattering and microscopy techniques, with Prof Andrew Keller until his death in 1999. He then moved into scanning probe microscopy (SPM), working with Prof Mervyn Miles to develop new techniques for following polymer processes in-situ in real time. Dr Hobbs obtained his fellowship in 2001 and continued both in the development and application of new SPM techniques and the complimentary use of in-situ x-ray scattering to follow phase behaviour in synthetic polymers. In 2001 he was a co-founder of Infinitesima, an SPM instrumentation company. In 2003 with Dr Andy Humphris, now CTO of Infinitesima, he developed the VideoAFM, giving a 1000-fold increase in image rate compared to conventional technology. His research group at the University of Sheffield is now concentrated on the development of VideoAFM for the rapid characterisation and manipulation of surfaces, using knowledge gained from in-situ AFM and X-ray scattering to control and manipulate the pattern forming capabilities of phase transitions at the nanometre scale.\n

Speaking in the special symposium on Nanoscale Characterization.
