In our lab, we employ experimental techniques and theoretical concepts of physics to investigate systems of biological interest ; the focus is on systems exhibiting at least one characteristic length in the nanometre regime. The research is based on close collaborations with groups from molecular biology, chemistry, physics and semiconductor technology.
Experimentally, we use different single molecule approaches (optical trapping, microscopic fluorescence, current measurements with biological nanopores), transistor based electronic detection, and some surface chemistry and molecular biology.
