Printed plasmonics for efficient biosensing
|Title of the project||Printed plasmonics for efficient biosensing|
|Primary and secondary scientific disciplines||biophysics, chemistry|
|Description of the project||On one hand, the project focuses on developing simple yet reproducible technology of printing metallic nanostructures, and, secondly, on testing these novel substrates as chips for detection of dyes, proteins, and viruses. In addition to fabrication of biosensor chips, the project aims at devising efficient functionalization techniques for required biofunctionality. Selectivity and sensitivity of printed plasmonic chips will be tested and verified using advanced fluorescence microscopy techniques. Research collaboration within this project will include aspects of material science and sensor development (prof. Sabine Szunerits), as well as surface functionalization protocols (prof. J. Niedziolka-Jonsson).
The project is carried out in cooperation with Université de Lille, France
Principal supervisor: Prof. dr hab. Sebastian Maćkowski
