The group focuses on novel synthesis of inorganic nanomaterials optimized for applications in ultra-sensitive chemical sensors, highly eficient energy storage devices, and functional nanoelectronics including nanofiber-based transistors and transparent electrodes.
This center aims to study the origin of microstructural instability and novel properties of nanostructured materials. Various nano-materials processing technologies related to nanopowders, in particular, are being developed.
The Center is organized into three teams: The first team is the Optical MEMS Lab which has focused on the development of MEMS sensors and quantum key distribution systems. The second team is the Nano-Bio System Lab which has developed HTS (high throughput system) microfluidic chips and nano-bio sensors based on a nanomechanical piezoelectric cantilever and optical waveguide. The Bio-Robotics and Nano-Mechatronics Lab constitutes the third team which is working on the development of nano-bio robots and studying nano surface engineering.
The Center for Nano-Bio Convergence is responsible for developing novel methodologies to measure and manipulate single cells, tissues, and biomaterials at a bio-molecular nano-scale using nanotechnology based on lasers, ion beams, and nano-probes. These new nano-bio methods are expected to foster innovative scientific and technological biomedical possibilities.
The lab offers quick and comprehensive solutions matching the needs of clients applying achievements in technology in the areas of nanotechnology, biotechnology, energy-, and environment-related technologies.
The Nano-Materials Research Laboratory has a high tech specialty in sol-gel, organic-inorganic hybrid, advanced analysis/ measurements and MEMS. Using combined expertise, the lab works on the formation of thin film, particle, bulk, control of microstructure and nanostructure, as well as, development of new functional materials and key materials for devices.
This Stockholm-based research program is a collective effort of research groups with different disciplinary competencies. Basically, the development of new, innovative tools, technologies and methodologies for chemical synthesis, analysis and biochemical diagnostics, performed in nanolitre to femtolitre domains is the major goal of the programme.
The Laboratory, a fully-owned unit of the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), carries out its research activities within the general context of the nanosciences, at the cross-roads of quantum optics and electronics, of physics, chemistry and biology, of materials science and device physics.
Research, development, and consulting are the main tasks of the LZH.The close cooperation between production engineers, material scientists, and physicists makes it possible that interdisciplinary solutions are found in all fields of laser applications, including nanotechnology.
The Leibniz Institute for Surface Modification carries out basic and applied research on physical and chemical mechanisms which are important at fabrication and modification of isolating, metallic, semi-conducting and polymeric surface layers. Low-energetic ions, electrons, plasma as well as VUV and UV photons are employed.
The researchers at the IPF work towards understanding the effects of interfaces and the utilization of interface design in material development, in which nanotechnological aspects as well as interfaces to biosystems are of great importance.
