In order to obtain a deeper insight into the behavior of nanoscale devices the group of Prof. Zandvliet studies their physical, chemical and especially electronic properties with high spatial resolution techniques. For that purpose they mainly apply Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) and Spectroscopy (SPS). Further development of SPM-based probes for electrical characterisation of nanostructures is a key part of their described research area.
Wageningen BioNT at the University of Wageningen is active in the fundamental science and technology of micro- and nanosystems and their applications in food and health. The centre helps companies to utilize the opportunities of micro- and nanotechnology to improve our food and prevent health problems.
