Nanoelectronics Applied Nano-Optics

The Applied Nano-Optics Laboratory at the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory focuses on the development of new optical instrumentation based on theoretical investigations applicable in the nano realm. These developments in turn allow us to study structures encountered in nanomedicine from a new point of view. Additionally, the laboratory is involved in the development of a state-of-the-art gas sensor for volatile organic compounds based on photoionization detection.

The laboratory has three ongoing project related to nanomedicine and nanoelectronics:

·         Light scattering of core-shell particles developed for biomedical applications (nanomedicine),

·         Spatially resolved optical anisotropy of supported lipid bilayers (nanomedicine),

·         Improved photo-ionization detection of volatile organic compounds (nanoelectronics).
