In this article, the roots and the current status of Nakajima laboratory is first introduced. Then, polymer nanomechanics performed in this laboratory is explained, which is divided into three categories; nanofishing of a single polymer chain, atomic force microscope-based polymer nanomechanics on various polymeric materials, and polymer nanorheology.
