Micro & Nano Analytical Sciences

Mikro- & Nanoanalytik

We explore the use of nanostructured materials, systems and devices for the development of novel analytical tools in a microscopic environment.


Key research areas dealing with material and device aspects :

  • Carbon nanostructures (graphene, carbon nanotubes)
  • Chemical functionalization of nanostructures
  • On-chip micro and nano scale electronic chemical sensors and biosensors
  • Microfluidics


Focus areas from an analytical perspective :

  • Real-time label-free electronic biosensing
  • Hybrid sensors by combining nano/micro systems
  • Exploring the ultimate limits of detection at the nanoscale
  • Complex detection schemes by integrating multiple detection technologies
