Abstract [en]

We use infrared near-field microscopy to chemically map the morphology of biological matrices. The investigated sample is built up from surface-tethered membrane proteins (cytochrome c oxidase) reconstituted in a lipid bilayer. We have carried out infrared near-field measurements in the frequency range between 1600 and 1800 cm(-1). By simultaneously recording the topography and chemical fingerprint of the protein-tethered lipid bilayer with a lateral resolution of 80 nm x 80 nm, we were able to probe locally the chemical signature of this membrane and to provide a local map of its surface morphology.
