CIC10_Master_Micro- and Nanoscale Substrates for Nanoengineering Applications

Plasmonics requires metallic films with precise microstructure and excellent optical properties. Therefore a large number of techniques are used to fabricate reproducible substrates. In particular array-based substrates such as nanoholes, nanowells, nanopillars, and nanorods have proven their potential as plasmonic sensors.

In this project the goal is to develop an array-based plasmonic surface for refractive index based sensors. This program is designed to implement a plasmonic system for the detection of exosomes using real samples. The students will work in the framework of the nanoengineering group of CIC nanoGUNE to carry out the following tasks:

  • Design of the plasmonic films and fabrication using lithography and sputtering techniques
  • Characterization of the surface and the deposition process with AFM and SEM
  • Perform measurements and evaluate different parameters with the SPR custom-made system

The Nanoengineering group focuses on research at the interface between fundamental nanoscience and applied engineering, in particular in the area of biomedical microsystems. The aim is to bridge the gap between physical sciences and industrial as well as clinical applications by introducing nanotechnology to finally gain added value for novel medical microsystems and mesoscopic devices.
