Due to its compatibility with living systems, its single-molecule sensitivity and its specificity, fluorescence microscopy has been the workhorse for dynamic studies of structure and function at the cellular and sub-cellular levels for almost a century. However, many challenging questions of molecular and cellular biology remain beyond its conventional capabilities. The temporal and spatial resolution of conventional fluorescence microscopy pose fundamental limits for investigating the…Continue

Photosynthesis of nanomaterials: developing nanostructured photocatalysts for solar fuel generation using light.
A key scientific challenge is to develop practical methods for the conversion of sun light into usable fuels. Such process, known as ‘artificial photosynthesis’ or ‘solar-fuel generation’, has recently received increasing interest by the scientific community, thanks to the development of nanotechnology. Nanostructured materials offer a variety of advantages over their bulk…
