The Molecular Force Microscope

The Molecular Force Microscope allows the user to explore and manipulate polymer configurations by displacing monomers. The user can thus develop an intuition into the material since also forces are displayed indicating the action that will take place in a subsequent simulation.

For the ellipsoidal model, the visualization uses the n+1 monomers bead-spring mapping, thus allowing a manipulation of individual focal points.
