Infinitesima announces the appointment of Dr. Andrew D. L. Humphris as Chief Technology Officer
Bristol, United Kingdom, Oct. 12, 2004
Dr. Andrew Humphris, whose research led to the development of Infinitesima's Video-rate Atomic Force Microscope, (VideoAFM(tm)), will be joining the company as Chief Technology Officer from October 2004. Dr. Humphris was most recently a Research Fellow of the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 and proleptic lecturer with the University of Bristol.
Andrew Humphris said "Infinitesima is committed to innovating and creating new tools for nanotechnologists. The VideoAFMTM uses a completely new approach to atomic force microscopy that circumvents the limitations imposed by traditional approaches. It is very exciting to be part of the team that is delivering this long awaited product to the market. The VideoAFM(tm) enables scientists to visualise nano-scale events in real-time, like an optical microscope but with nanometre resolution. This paves the way to a new era for scientists who can now follow and control chemical or biological processes at the single molecule level. Tools of this nature are also essential for many industrial applications such as large-area surface inspection and the realisation of nano-scales devices. It will be very exciting to see how Infinitesima's technology will revolutionise research in biotechnology and nanotechnology."
Infinitesima is a spin-out company from the Physics Department of the University of Bristol. The company focuses on improved techniques for Scanning Probe Microscopy, a key enabling tool in the field of nanotechnology and is currently working on a Video-rate Atomic Force Microscope (VideoAFM(tm)), a product which it expects to announce shortly.
Dr. Andrew D. L. Humphris was a Research Fellow of the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 and received a proleptic lectureship in Physics at the University of Bristol in May 2003. He has researched in the area of nanoscience for the past seven years with a focus on developing novel tools for working at the nanometre length scale based on scanning probe microscope methods. He is a founder of Infinitesima and his research has led to the development of the company's core technologies.
