Strategy

The Nanoengineering Group focuses on research at the interface between fundamental nanoscience and applied engineering, particularly in the area of photonic medical diagnostics, environmental issues, and food control. By introducing nanotechnology and photonic approaches, we bridge the gap between physical sciences and industrial as well as clinical applications to finally gain added value for novel biomedical methods, devices, and instrumentation. The acceleration of technology transfer is the driving motor for our research activities.

Early detection of Alzheimer's

nanoengineering

We investigate the early detection of Alzheimer´s disease by a bimodal approach, employing Raman and FTIR (Fourier transform mid-infrared) spectroscopy

Plasmonic detection of biomarkers

Plasmonic detection of biomarkers

In this research line we establish a highly sensitive liquid biopsy based on plasmonic sensing. Additionally, we utilize the method for food control and measurement of environmental conditions

Photonic monitoring of physiology

Photonic monitoring of physiology

We develop methods and devices for continuous non-invasive monitoring of physiological parameters of the human body

Photonic monitoring of vital signs

Photonic monitoring of vital signs

We develop methods and devices for continuous long-term monitoring of vital signs

Plasmonic supercrystals

Plasmonic supercrystals

We are optimizing the fabrication of plasmonic supercrystals to further push the limit of detection in Surface-Enhanced Spectroscopy as SERS and plasmonic methods as SPR or LSPR

Nanoengineering Equipment

The Nanoengineering Group features an optics laboratory with high-end optical metrology and fabrication services for solid as well as soft matter. The lab is fully equipped for the preparation and manipulation of chemical samples and biological material.

  • Graphene nanoribbons for emerging quantum technologies

    A multidisciplinary group of research teams, working in the framework of FET OPEN Project SPRING (www.springfetopen.eu), report that certain stripes of graphene called graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) acquire the anomalous topological state of matter when narrowed down to just a few nanometers in width. The research has...Read more
