Potentiometric-Scanning Ion Conductance Microscopy
Potentiometric-Scanning Ion Conductance Microscopy (P-SICM) is a rising sub-class of scanning ion conductance microscopy (SICM) that allows for the simultaneous collection of topography and local apparent conductance. In the Bakergrp, this technique began with past group members such as, Chiao-Chen who started by making single-point measurements (Chen, C. C.; Zhou, Y.; Morris, C. A.; Hou, […]
Our New COMSOL Simulation Horsepower
For electrochemists doing research with scanning probe techniques, COMSOL modeling plays a significant role in instructing experiment design, estimating imaging results affected by pipette geometric, and validating electrochemical phenomena observed. Recently, Baker group has purchased a new server for more efficient COMSOL simulation. The Dell PowerEdge server is specified with 24-core AMD EYPC processor, and […]
Ion Channel Probe-SICM
The bakergrp developed ion channel probes (ICP) for SICM to expand the functional sensing capabilities of SICM. The initial stage of ICP-SICM was developed in 2014 by Yi Zhou in collaboration with Craig Aspinwall’s group at the University of Arizona, where α-hemolysin was incorporated within a black lipid membrane at the tip of the pipette.

Our research group aims to train students to excel as both a scientist and a person. We realize and value the importance of diverse backgrounds and ideas in generating new scientific knowledge, and in promoting a healthy work environment. We value freedom of expression, civil discourse, and diversity in opinions, research, teaching, and life.
