Optical methods to study the function of single enzymes have initiated a revolution because they revealed marked differences between individual molecules in a seemingly homogeneous population. The diffraction limit of light has largely restricted these single-molecule fluorescence studies to dilute and buffered solutions which are not representative for the concentrated cellular environment. In this project you will exploit the strongly confined field around a plasmonic nanoparticle to study…Continue

Development of a new generation of mass measuring device based on NEMS sensors for biological applications.
Nano-Electro-Mechanical systems (NEMS) have been a field of extremely active research for more than a decade now. They are of particular interest for a wide range of applications, from quantum measurements to biotechnology. CEA LETI MINATEC has been designing, modeling, fabricating and characterizing NEMS-based mass sensors for several years. The extremely…Continue

This project is a collaboration between experts in nanoscience located near Paris (France) at CEA de Saclay, Ecole Polytechnique, and the SOLEIL synchrotron, supported by three French funding agencies. Our consortium tackles generic questions on the nucleation of crystallline oxide nanoparticles synthesised in water [Fleury et al., ACS Nano 2014]. We address in particular this problem for the synthesis of…Continue

We would like to invite you to attend a webinar dedicated to those students in the fields of physics, material science, polymers and all areas where Atomic Force Microscopy may be employed. This webinar will also be useful as a refresher update for any Post Doc students or recent PhD graduates.
The webinar will cover the following topics:
• Physical principles of Atomic Force Microscopy – contact and noncontact/semicontact modes, Phase, Amplitude (Feedback…
Many key ecological interactions between plants, herbivores, bacteria and fungi occur at different surfaces. These form the boundaries between organisms and their aerial, aquatic, or subterranean environments, as well as the interfaces of organisms interacting with each other. The release or detection of odors and other chemical signals occurs at surfaces; surface biofilms made by bacteria and diatoms create unique environmental niches. Yet very little information is available on compounds…Continue

Trapping Matter at the Nanometer Scale in Fluids
My lab at the University of Zurich, located in the Dept. of Chemistry and affiliated with the Dept. of Physics, is primarily interested in understanding the properties of soft condensed matter at the nanoscale.
We recently pioneered a new method to trap nanometer scale objects like proteins, semiconductor quantum dots and macromolecules in solution and are looking for bright, highly motivated…

IBM is an embarking on an ambitious project to find the next-generation chip technology to replace silicon. IBM will invest $3 billion over the next find years in this project. IBM will look into graphene, carbon nanotubes, quantum computing, silicon photonics and more technologies.
In the first stage they will build 7 nm silicon chips. But smaller architecture will need a completely new approach, and IBM intends to discover the best one.…
