Projects at a glance
InfeMec- Nanomechanics of proteins involved in viral and bacterial infectionsWe will use bioinformatics and high-throughout screening techniques to identify molecules that alter the nanomecanichs of anchoring proteins and that can potentially be used to prevent infections.
ANTOMIC - Quantum nanoantennas for atomic-scale optical spectroscopy
The ANTOMIC project (Quantum nanoantennas for atomic-scale optical spectroscopy) studies the quantum limits of light emission and scattering by metallic and molecular nanowires of nanometer sizes. We will identify their plasmon resonances and correlate them with their quantized electronic structure.
ElectronStopping - Electronic stopping power from first principles
