Dr. Paul West is the founder of AFMWorkshop. Dr. West began his career working with scanning tunneling microscopes (STM) as a postdoc at the California Institute of Technology in 1983 where he built one of the world’s first STMs. His career in the development and application of scanning probe microscopes spans over 30 years.
Paul pioneered the investigation of nanotechnology applications for scanning probe microscope (SPM) technology, resulting in patents for nanoscale motion sensors (US Patent #5,009,111, nanoscale position sensors (US patent #5,257,024) and nanoscale digital mass storage (US patent # 4,956,817).
Innovative SPM products invented by Dr. West include:
Fully integrated AFM system having motorized sample positioners, a video microscope and vibration isolation (U.S. Patent #5,291,775).
Tip scanning light lever AFM (U.S. Patent # 5,319,960)
Resistive scanning thermal sensing probes (U.S. Patent #5,441,343)
Integrated AFM with SEM (U.S. Patent #5,455,420)
Dr. West holds patents for many additional AFM/SPM products and applications.
In thirty years of AFM instrument innovation, Dr. West has founded several Atomic Force Microscope manufacturing companies. Over the years, those companies and their patents were acquired by companies such as Agilent Technologies, and ThermoElectron/Veeco/Bruker. Thousands of atomic force microscopes developed by Dr. West are in use throughout the world and have resulted in many scientific publications, Ph.D. dissertations, and technical breakthroughs.
