Description:

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.
